Peter Lauer, Riesling Barrel X, 2021

White Wine from Mosel, Germany
Get 10% off purchases of 12+ bottles of wine. (Use code 10OFF at checkout.)
The quintessential Mosel Riesling from one of its top producers — ever so slightly off-dry, with a crisp and saline finish. We get flavors of lime leaf and lime cordial, with the juiciness of white peach and nectarine. It’s the Saar Riesling equivalent of Bourgogne Blanc — a selection of vines from all around the Lauer estate, ranging in age from 10 to over 70 years. We like it on its own, with tempura, sushi or spicy noodles.

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.

German Wines

Is there a better grape than Riesling? Is there a better value? Its fruit purity, its perfume, and its mineral nuance are all unparalleled. And for centuries, the top German Rieslings were priced accordingly: at least as expensive as the top red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy. But nowadays you could spend a lifetime exploring Germany’s great Riesling-producing regions while staying well within your budget. You might take an occasional break to try Germany’s other white grapes or perhaps a glass of Spätburgunder (the local name for Pinot Noir). It’s time to get started!

Crowd pleaser

Even people who aren’t Riesling drinkers love this wine. Apples and apricot on the nose with a pleasant lemony citrus taste and good acidity with a long finish. Low in alcohol, but any residual sugar is balanced by the acid and citrus notes.
