2018 Julien Schaal Riesling Sommerberg Grand Cru...$34.99

Rated 92/100 James Suckling
A tropical overtone of candied pineapple on the nose of this wine promises opulence and richness, while a tinge of bergamot intensifies the exotic impression. The concentrated palate brims with pineapple and canned peach but remains pristine, dry and even racy despite all this richness that reflects the heat of the 2018 summer. This wine is rich, dry and fresh in equal measure. Drink now–2035
Rated 95/100 The Wine Enthusiast


2018 Julien Schaal Riesling Rosacker Grand Cru....$34.99
This is very beautiful with lime, stone and green-melon character. Medium-to full-bodied and creamy with a flavorful finish. Mineral and flinty. From organically grown grapes. Drink now.
Rated 93/100 James Suckling
Fresh chamomile leaves and a notion of crushed yarrow give freshness to the nose of this wine that is intense but nuanced. On the palate, freshness frames and shapes everything, despite the rounded, almost gilded peach fruit of 2018. Ripe lemon brightness gives concentration, structure and drive to this gorgeous dry Riesling. Drink now–2040.

2018 Julien Schaal Altenberg de Bergheim Grand Cru Gewurztraminer....$34.99
Peach and honeysuckle are subtle on the nose of this wine, harmonizing with Valencia orange notes. The palate is bright and fresh, boosted by gentle sweetness that counters the richness, concentration and inherent warmth alongside a pleasantly bitter phenolic edge. Full of flavor, this is a masterful display of harmony. Drink 2023–2035.

2019 E. Traber Alsace Riesling...$19.99
E. Traber Riesling a dry white wine from the region of Alsace. This white wine is aromatic and it is classified as a “noble grape variety” just like Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Muscat. 
It is known to be the finest of Alsace grapes and the most elegant. It covers about a quarter of the Alsatian vineyard.  It is a dry, racy white with loads of citrus and mineral components.   Well structure with a very long finish.
It goes perfectly with turkey, Smoked ham, fish, seafood, poultry, cold meat but also very well with Alsatian dishes such as sauerkraut


2018 E. Traber Alsace Gewuztraminer...$19.99
All the grapes are harvested by hand, to preserve all the aromatic richness, purity and freshness of the grape variety.  This Gewurztraminer expressess the typicity of the grape variety.  Gewurztraminer is the most aromatic of Alsace wines. With its aromas of rose, lychee and spices, and covers the palate. Soft, it goes well with foie gras, a fruit-based dessert. It goes well with spicy dishes or full-bodied cheeses.  Perfect with the wide assortment at Thanksgiving too!


2018 Hugel "Gentil"....$14.99
Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Muscat Pinot Blanc and Sylvaner.
A very clean and citrusy white that shows green apples and lemons. Medium-bodied and very dry, this is sleek, tangy and fruity on the finish. Drink now.
Rated 90/100 James Suckling
