Aromas of forest floor and white pear flesh waft out of the glass, offering just a hint of petrol. This is a handsome wine, with perky acidity and white melon notes set against a backdrop of wet slate, lemon zest and evergreen trees. The finish takes an earthy turn, which only makes it feel all the more like you’re in the forest or in the presence of a very tasteful cologne. As the long finish wears on, some of that white pear reappears. It invites you to keep sipping.

Olivier Humbrecht selects this from his old vines in Turckheim, averaging 52 years of age, on the rich soils of the valley floor. It’s a ripe 2018, so ripe that Whitney Asher of Brava in Lenox, Mass., described it as “a big, balanced baker—a big fat guy you know can make pie.” A bright, joyous riesling, fragrant with white rose scents, high energy with complex layers of richness.

A joyful Alsace dry riesling that’s brimming with citrus and floral aromas, plus notes of peach and melon. So lively and playful, in spite of the considerable substance, this medium-to full-bodied wine has a long, dry and stony finish. Beautiful balance! From biodynamically grown grapes.

Succulent nectarine, pineapple and Meyer lemon zest flavors are accented by savory hints of bitter almond and fresh tarragon in this light- to medium-bodied white. An underlying streak of salinity emerges to leave a mouthwatering impression on the finish.

Here’s the answer to anyone who thinks that dry riesling is always too lean and tart. It would be hard not to like the full fruit-salad aromas of this generous, ripe wine that also has some subtle bergamot and floral notes. Lively, without being tart, the finish is long and juicy. From biodynamically grown grapes.
