The Terry Theise Estate Selections 2014 Germany Vintage Report is In!

The best wines of 2014 are shimmering chewy beauties, offering as much neon brilliance and phosphorescence as Riesling ever can, together with such density of texture you wouldn’t mind a knife to cut through it, and with impressive if not amazing complexity of herbal and stony nuance. 2014 is not driven by yellow fruits, as was the case in years like ’12, ’11, ’09, even ’07. It is less obviously ripe. There are even Kabinetts below 80º Oechsle – something we thought we’d never see again. It falls into the “green” vein of flavors; this is both metaphorical and actual. Verbena, wintergreen, aloe vera, balsam, Japanese green teas, tarragon, all dem green boys. 2014 also has a kind of silver cast, as (in my lysergic reckoning) anise hyssop, fennel, chervil, and a strong, definite, absolutely not imagistic or metaphorical taste of totally crushed and pulverized rocks.

SKURNIK'S 'BIG 3' ROSÉ WINES

Our 2014 Rosé wines from Bieler Père et Fils, Château du Rouët, and Mas de Gourgonnier. These wines will all be shipping from Open Stock, NOT as pre-orders, and can be ordered through your sales rep or our order board.

We are receiving more wine than ever from all of these estates as to keep up with the continually growing demand. Château du Rouët arrives mid-February and the others in March and April. And if the quality reports are true, these 2014s should be absolutely delicious. Now we just have to wait for the sun… Santé!
