This is “a feinherb” the same way a Ducati is “a motorcycle”. It’s all in the experience of sizzling acids, huge extract and wet, grayish slate minerality. Always a Saar highlight that shows what value is available in its less-expensive wines.

Beautifully straightforward peach-nectarine-dried apricot fruit married to exceptionally racy kaffir lime finish. Exceptionally long and very dry at the end.

Straw colored, dry, delightful. Barnyard and green apples, fresh minerality.

Surprisingly wonderful, great acidity and sparkle up front on the pallet. Lots of minerality and green apples and nectarine in the finish.

Probably the best Riesling we have had in a few years. Balanced and note that this is a dry Riesling but has expressive fruit much like a normal Riesling. Powerful and can stand up to pork chops and a perfect match. Buying a case.

Lime, wet rock, nectarine, jasmine. Lots of acid, completely dry with just a trace of residual sugar on the lips. Awesome QPR.
