Peter Lauer 'Barrel X' Riesling Feinherb, Mosel, Germany 2021
Florian Lauer is making waves in the Saar. Quickly developing a cult following with delicious and precise wines. Barrel X is Lauer’s Platonic ideal of what a Saar Riesling should be. If we were in Burgundy this would be the equivalent of a Bourgogne Blanc. As an appellation-level wine, it is sourced from multiple vineyards in three different villages of the Saar. This is always a thrilling off-dry and a great value!
