Terry Theise Estate Selections

    (Loewen Laurentiuslay Riesling Spätlese) ($27.00) DO NOT MISS THIS WINE! The 2009 was one of the five best wines I offered from that vintage, and this was on the short-list for wine-of-the-vintage this year. It is that good. In fact it is so masterly I wonder that it’s still such a sleeper. It isn’t expensive. If it said “Wehlener Sonnenuhr” people would be talking about de-throning J.J. Prüm. The palate is on the dry side based on the buffering of gigantic extract. A massively fascinating fragrance, a witch’s brew of greens and yellows and pulsating slate; the palate is drenched and charged with density and sheer flavor, with the electric charge of great wine. The swell and undertow and length are mind-bending. I consider this a monument to Riesling at its most resplendent, profound and beautiful.
