"The 2019er Schonfels Fass 11 GG, as it is referred to on the consumer label, comes from this steep south-east facing hill overseeing the Saar (legally part of the Ayler Kupp vineyard). It offers a truly remarkable nose made of pear sorbet, elderflower, elements of cassis and starfruit, aniseed herbs, and smoke. The wine is gorgeously precise and animating on the fruit and spice-driven palate and leaves a hugely spicy and beautifully dry feel in the long finish. This stunning dry Riesling combines impact with finesse. 2022-2031"  -- Mosel Fine Wines

The Saar is our kind of region: cold and mineral-rich but with sun that makes Rieslings as succulent as they are perfectly seasoned with salt and racy acidity.

Peter Lauer makes some of our very favorite Saar wines. It's a bit hard to pin down exactly how Peter Lauer fits into today's Riesling zeitgeist. He's best known for his forward-leaning dry wines.

But he's not just a trippy natural grower. He's a neighbor of the great Egon Müller, and while their wines are oceans apart they share so many affinities, starting with a love for German tradition, terroir-specificity, and brilliance in Riesling. The Lauer wines are often described as drier, which is true as far as it goes; but even his driest wines have fruit and their own sort of decadence. They certainly have the Saar purity we love.

Probably, we just have to accept that there are multiple ways to express the greatness of the Saar.
