fortunately, a few importers love them and focus on them so we can get pretty much most of the top producers, but quantities are slim and prices tend to be uppity so that is a little discouraging. but i am sure that there are many really good ones we do not see.

prum, haag, especially donnhoff, robert weil, egon muller (though they are really so expensive) probably my faves. and i have had the chance to visit them all a couple of times which is also a plus.

Yep, all top producers with top-top-Lagen, and still you find qual at very fair pricing even there (ex-"Chateau" that is of course). So, really unfortunate - given that you are vistiting the area personally - that wine doesn't come in as handy as cigars....:D

Encourage your importers to go on a search for top-value producers (I may drop some further names for you, Ken....haha!)

They can still be found - nothing to do with the Nazis. Even the VDP wine association and all its members are using it ("Verband Deutscher Prädikats- und Qualitätsweingüter", founded it 1910, so unsuspicious  ;)). You know - the white tailed eagle still is the German's heraldic animal, and its use reaches far back into the medieval...

VDP.jpg.8b88c04e60bbad75b8afdfc196f30d88.jpg

Vast understatement. Together with Wittmann (to go on with the name dropping.... haha), Klaus-Peter Keller represents the top of the crop in Reinhessen - if not of Germany..., for red (some Burgundian Burgs) as well as white.

By the way, Doennhoff made some Brücke Eiswein last year, and afai remember in some pretty good quanities. This winter seems not to bode so well as it appears to be a rather mild one - so far...

a mate got some of the 2004 eiswein from donnhoff, which apparently had two bottlings - he got both. tiny quantities, horrendous money but he is very generous. usually cracks one when there is a 2001 yquem going (which has always been a 100 pointer for me and i believe likely to be seen as the greatest yquem ever made in time). it never fails to at least equal if not knock off the yquem. different wines but sensational.

when i went to donnhoff in 15? i think, an amazing tasting over about three hours and we finished with the '13 eiswein (might have the wrong vintage - don't have my notes). i remember them saying that other than a few bottles at the local annual auction, it would not be released. they made a total of 113 halves. so incredibly generous to open one. and it was extraordinary.

Yes, I think the last run of Brücke Eiswein was an exceptionally big one (and yes, there may be different bottlings, sometimes in addition to the "normal" one, they make an auction bottling, or rather v.v.). The winters in that region are always so unpredictable (unlike as for other famous icewine regions, such as Canada e.g), and so, making Eiswein, as for BA and TBA (the rain and the birds...!) is always a lottery. Prices for the tiny bit of liquid are then more than justified.

They can still be found - nothing to do with the Nazis. Even the VDP wine association and all its members are using it ("Verband Deutscher Prädikats- und Qualitätsweingüter", founded it 1910, so unsuspicious  ;)). You know - the white tailed eagle still is the German's heraldic animal, and its use reaches far back into the medieval...

VDP.jpg.8b88c04e60bbad75b8afdfc196f30d88.jpg

It wasn't that symbol.  The wings were spread out and with no grapes.  It's hard to find many 1930's - early 40's German wine labels online for whatever reason.  It wasn't a Prum or Loosen brand.  I was unfamiliar with house.

This thread got me thinking...  I should open a German wine!  It's just after lunch and coldest day in years.  German wine makes sense.

not sure if i can get these to paste properly but giving it a go.

these will be some of the wines that some of our better importers bring in.

Wow - very interesting Ken! Those are truly all top names, nice selection there (well, 'Jayjay' Prüm and Egon Müller....! nothing more left to say). But price-wise it looks as if Australia were trying hard to keep those wines out of their market... :huh:.

I get there is some Magnum and Dmag pricing stated, but at that level, you could almost consider gathering with some wine-enthusiastic mates (I bet you got a few...) and organise a container - or part-container and import yourself..... Not kidding. While not knowing the actual import duties that these wines might be burdened with, at current sea-fright rates.... :D

At those prices (2-3x ex-producer or even retail original price) these wines would be forbidding for me. You still get many first growths and GGs from the top producers around and even below 30 bucks (ca AUD 45), with prices in the main being 'fairly' stable, exception perhaps the absolute top names recently (there is some hype, indeed).

Attaching two pics for you, just for the fun - Keller's Hubacker and Westhofener Kirchspiel from when these wines still were "simply" 'Riesling - dry' before they went "Großes Gewächs" (Grand Cru). Haag's first GG of Juffer Sonnenuhr ('08), lead by a BA from one of the last vintages under responsibility of father Wilhelm. And the (for me) legendary 2007 Hermannshöhle GG. If I told you pricing at time of me buying them, compared to your current import prices it will bring tears to your eyes... Still, 2015 and '16 Hermannshöhle 'GG' went for EUR 42,00 (~AUD 65) ex producer. Even Keller's Hubacker and Kirchspiel GGs ranking under EUR 40 for 2016.

Nice to see, there is quite a bit of Rheinhessen in those offerings, a highly dynamic region where truly a revolution had taken place over the last two decades. Love Wagner-Stempel. And Winter is a huge favourite of mine, with (one has to say) ex-junior Stefan Winter keeping his feet firmly on the ground. Terrific dry Riesling from Leckerberg and Geyersberg at still very fair pricing (have a look out for them), and even the basic qualities you can trustfully buy blind year after year.

[All that being said - if you got the dosh Ken, do yourself a favour and put some 1/1 and Magnums or even DMs of 2015 Hermannshöhle and also Dellchen 'GG' in your cellar! Also Wittmann's GGs Morstein, Kirchspiel and Aulerde appear comparatively nice-priced. Pricing ranking up with Doennhoff usually, or even above.]

I suspect you have in mind some of the (many) labels of Staatsweingüter or the Staatl. Weinbaudomäne. They all were bearing the heroic eagle (see pics), and - you are right indeed - probably designed in the early 30s (I think I remember having seen even some bearing the swastika). But also those have been in use until quite recently. But I do get what you mean. Many of those labels were redesigned meanwhile with the reorganisation of properties and/or privatizations. Fortunately, there are also a lot of truly lovely art-nouveau and art-déco labels out there....

To give you an idea of wine prices in Boston, I dug up my order on 2015 Keller per bottle:

2015 KELLER GRUNER SILVANER TROCKEN - $20 USD
2015 KELLER RIESLING TROCKEN - $21 USD
2015 KELLER LIMESTONE KABINETT RIESLING - $20 USD

2015 KELLER LIMESTONE KABINETT RIESLING - $20 USD

Thanks for that. Interesting to see this even pricing level for those wines in the US, which were originally quite differently priced ex producer. E.g. the 2015 Silvaner trocken was $8.40 (USD), while the "Limestone" Kabinett was $14.20. Seems like you did a pretty good catch there with the limestone at $20. (Ken would have to pay $50 USD for that same wine in Stralia!....). Still a bit frightening to see how expensive those wines are becoming after overseas import. While in most of Europe (bar Scandinavia) you can get e.g. US or Australian wines for +/- much the same as what is asked for in retail there. Looks like Australia and (to a lesser extent) also the USA are either protecting their markets a fair deal more than vice versa, or the tax on wine/alcohol is so much higher there...

It's not tax in my state that is elevating the price.  MA has some of the lowest liquor prices I have seen the world.  Never been to duty free that less expensive than a liquor discount liquor store down the street.

the prices are partly transport/distance but mostly our arcane and absurd taxes. it means containers done privately are just as badly hit.

i think i posted elsewhere that i took a Haag double magnum fishing to fraser island this year for the team. 2011 auslese. stunning, and got it for $200 (down from around $680 as the wholesaler having a clear-out. got a second for myself). 3-4 of us had a lovely afternoon. it was their BJS that are in your pics. and thanks for those.

a couple for you...

egon muller after a very funny day (will try and find the story for you - thought one of my mates had pegged out at the top of one of the steepest vineyards).

5a58436d2113c_ChampEurope20143046.thumb.JPG.621b4ab57bfb1ecf606e3bd858354ce2.JPG

then after, we had a tasting, during which egon fired up a cigar. to my delgiht and the disgust of many somms.  and no idea why this has gone underline and can't get rid of it.

Yes, I remember your post. Great deal on that one.

Many thanks for posting those lovely pics, Ken! And how nice to learn Egon Müller is also a lover of cigars (well, why should he not....)
Your Licht-Bergweiler 1971 Beerenauslese is asking a 475 EUR today....
