The killer 2014 Peter Lauer, Barrel X Riesling
It is true that I have not written about Peter Lauer’s Barrel X Riesling since the 2010 vintage. Let me correct this absence by immediately recommending you pick up several bottles of the 2014 Peter Lauer, Barrel X Riesling, Saar. This vintage sports the same attractive combination of minerality, citrus, and lively personality from its top-notch acidity. I would not say this is a bone dry wine for those who are curious. Incredibly, the wine has dropped $1 in price compared to the 2010 vintage! I have personally seen two bottles to the end so again, I recommend you grab this outstanding value. This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.
2014 Peter Lauer, Barrel X Riesling, Saar – $18
A vom Boden selection imported by T. Elenteny Imports. This wine is 100% Riesling. Alcohol 10.5%. The wine was lively on the tongue with immediate flavors of chalky, white, citrus fruit. The wine quickly picked up complex spices before the mouth filling finish that leaves a long, ripe and textured aftertaste. A real treat. *** Now-2017.
