Tasting Notes

Founded in 1849, Reichsrat von Buhl is located in Deidesheim, Germany. An aromatic, exotic Riesling coming from the Pfalz region which is one of the more warm regions of the country. This warmth and the soil composition of sandstone, clay, chalk and basalt gives all their wines such unique character.

Staff Pick Notes

If I ever get around to writing a wine memoir it's going to be called Confessions of a Petrol Junkie. I can't get enough of those intoxicating "gasoline" aromas that to me are like sitting on a tire swing on a hot summer day. It's one of the myriad reasons why Riesling is my favorite grape, and when I find it in a wine, I can't get enough. It's an elusive, addictive muse. And it's one of the reasons I love this Kabinett from Reichsrat von Buhl,a family-owned winery founded in 1849. Here it spirals out of the glass as a gentle whisper while on the palate it lends a soft smoky note to the touches of ripe apple and pear. While the low alcohol here hints at sweetness, the acidity here brings it all in balance. A wine with this complexity and sheer deliciousness at this price is just another reason to love Riesling.

Though it's now cultivated worldwide, Riesling is nearly synonymous with German wine, and that country's winemakers have lately begun to produce some very exciting dry versions. They are careful to retain the...
