A tasty dry Riesling that's textured and complex. The grapes are sourced from a variety of different vineyards in four separate villages of the Saar region in Germany. This wine begs for spicy food! We couldn't agree more with Vom Boden when they said "This is the gateway drug to Lauer, to the Saar, to Rieslingā€¦ be careful. Very addictive."

The Producer

About Lauer

The Saar region stands as a pinnacle of winemaking, celebrated for its unparalleled intensity and unique character. Frank Schoonmaker's description in "The Wines of Germany" captures the essence of Saar wines: austerity intertwined with delicacy, finesse, and an indescribable bouquet. Florian Lauer, among the eminent winemakers of the Saar, epitomizes this excellence. Unlike his renowned neighbor Egon MĆ¼ller, Lauer's focus lies in crafting dry-tasting Rieslings, embodying purity, precision, and mineral-driven elegance. With natural-yeast fermentations, Lauer's wines boast a distinctive texture and masculinity, exuding balance and energy synonymous with the Saar's grandeur.
