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.

This dry Riesling is just superb full of minerality, racing acidity, beautiful ripe fruit, complimented by a subtle florality that I absolutely LOVE.
I could not say a bad thing about this wine, except maybe I wish I could taste it again in 20 years.
