    (SCHLOSS LISER Nieder Held SPATLESE) Mosel Saar Dear Friends, Two crazy deals on German Riesling - there may more filigreed vintages of each but not at this price. In other words, I wouldn't hesitate to enjoy either of these any night of the week. Both have impeccable provenance and are EXTREMELY LIMITED at this price. This parcel will arrive in a few weeks - local pick up around October 15th-20th: 2003 Schloss Lieser Niederberg Helden Riesling Spètlese (Mosel) 750ml (IWC/1*) Yes, this is a 2003 but it's also not $30 or more. I think most of you will ignore the vintage in exchange for a most interesting wine at this price-level. If left alone for another 6-8 years, the Helden could evolve into a low-acid dessert treat for a song: 2002 Zilliken Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Spètlese (Saar) 750ml (IWC/1*) Wait until you sniff the nose of this evolving wine - wow. Hanno Zilliken believes 2002 is not far behind 2001 in quality and I'm not going to argue with him. At this price? You're kidding, right? Maybe this could use a bit more framework but the secondary character and pin-point/citric Saar olfactory fashion show emerging from this wine make it more than worth the experiment. Nothing calms tropical fruit like age - enough said. VERY RARE in the US - this is not the widely distributed Saarburger Rausch Spatlese: Thank you, Jon Rimmerman Garagiste Seattle, WA Germ8621 Germ8622
