Peter Lauer, Fass 16 Riesling 2017
Gulping this gorgeous, thirst-quenching wine is as refreshing as drinking pure spring water, but with masses of flavour packed in – a heady mix of pears, minerals and citrus. Julia gave it a very respectable 17 last year, praising its 'saliva-inducing freshness and intensity'. It's a super-fresh, glorious wine to end the day with – and at 12.5%, it's also worth stockpiling for summer lunches in the garden (if/when summer ever comes)." Wine of the week, jancisrobinson.com, by Emily Lightfoot. Feb. 2018
Peter Lauer is a third-generation family business, started in 1913 and continued today by Peter's grandson Florian Lauer. Florian has more of a 'natural', non-interventionist approach in the cellar than his predecessors. Wines undergo a long, cool fermentation with ambient yeasts. This wine is filtered, but none are fined – Lauer's wines are proudly vegan, using none of the animal products typical in fining.
