Nice wicked acid for a reisling. Honeycomb. Just a kiss of residual sugar but not a sweet wine. Over ripe honeydew melon. Wow.

A somewhat muted nose at this point with notes of citrus and wet stone. Juicy and quite dry on the palate with lots of minerality. Much dryer on the palate than the 2014 vintage. Light, juicy flavors of lemon, lime and a touch of peach lead to big, bright acidity and lots of crunchy wet stone and slate notes. The finish is long and very crisp with lots of bright acidity. Great sushi pairing for the evening.

Sweeter than expected. Probably paired it wrong. Might work well with something spicy.

Peter Lauer "Barrel X" from the excellent 2015 vintage...elegant, precise, tense with chipped rock and chalk minerality, loads of juicy lime, sweet ruby grapefruit, and tart apples, with pitch perfect acidity. A steal at about $20, this crushed it with seared scallops. #peterlauer #riesling #saar #mosel

Great value on this wine. Good acidity, bright fruit,. Though not bone dry this is not particularly sweet and really the residual sugar only shows against certain foods.
