A Starry Selection of German Rieslings to Drink Now

22 September 2023

The 2018s have shed a lot of their early flesh and have taken on an altogether tender, charming personality, carried with a finesse and silky mineral complexity that makes many so lovely to drink now. While the 2017s were born with higher levels of concentration and extract, these are starting to come around too in places, in a more detailed, spicy and restrained manner, as some particularly impressive dry wines from the Pfalz attested to. The 2016s have retained the tension and pared-back, cooler fruit profile that so appealed from the beginning, whilst just starting to take on a creamier, more mineral authority in the dry and Kabinett levels – a vintage that was a little overlooked after 2015, it is one that, especially now, will appeal to classically leaning palates.

Below you will find a selection of German Rieslings that, although young in the grand scheme of things, would not constitute a crime to open now. On the contrary, with summer upon us, there is no grape to equal Riesling’s ability to refresh the senses with such levity and grace
