Like the Ruwer region, wine from the Saar district (along the lower course of the Saar River, in Rhineland-Palatinate) is particularly dependent on the overall quality of the vintage typically only 4 years out of every 10 producing a worthwhile set of wines. The wines that do come out of these warm vintages are noted for their apple-like freshness and steely mineral notes. The most ideal vintages allows harvest to take place between late October and mid November where the grapes can develop enough sugar to produce floral and honeyed notes

  • Reverchon Saar Riesling Riesling Tracken 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A Lot 18 Quarterly Selection. A strange, but not unpleasant meaty/yeasty/umami taste/smell. Crisp green apple and a bit of lime, full mouth feel, and long finish. Off dry and good acidity. Had this alone, but image it would be quite good with food. Read More

  • Don't know if the OP has even checked back at all on this. But if people ... Hofgut 2011 Saar Niedermenniger Sonnenberg Ries Sekt BrutErich Weber, grinning from ear to ear, calls this "100% Riesling Winzersekt" presumably to differentiate it from the boatloads of Sekt produced from lesser grape varieties by massive operations.

  • Dr. Loosen Dr. L Mosel Riesling Qba 2012

    Snoothrank:

    After seeing this QbA get rave reviews in the Wine Spectator, I decided to try it. Citrus nose and good acid but this wine lacks the perfume of a 91 point wine. It also lacks the richness and fruit of a good German Riesling. Somewhat simple and not worth the money. Your money would be better spent on a $15 Kabinett. My rating-- 86 Read More

  • Bex Riesling 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This wine gave me the impression of citrus-y sour nose, palate and finish...I was not impressed with this Riesling at all. It did not have a lot of anything interesting going on. Read More
