Peter Lauer, Riesling Barrel X 2020Regular price $25.00 Save $-25.00
For purists, there is nothing like the Saar. It is arguably one of the greatest, most unique wine-growing regions on earth. The core of greatness in the Saar is intensity without weight, grandiosity without size. At Lauer, the focus is on dry-tasting Rieslings as opposed to the residual sugar wines of others in the region. For this style, there are really only two addresses in the Saar: Lauer and Hofgut Falkenstein.
Employing natural-yeast fermentations, Lauer’s wines find their own balance. They tend to be more textural, deeper and more masculine. They have a preternatural sense of balance, an energy that is singular. Yet the hallmarks of the Saar are there: purity, precision, rigor, mineral.
