Riesling High End Collectibles Wine
Riesling grapes have been grown in and around central Europe for centuries, and over time, they became the lasting symbol of south Germany's ancient and proud wine culture. Whilst the reputation of German wines abroad has in the past been mixed, the Germans themselves take an enormous amount of pride in their wineries, and Riesling grapes have now spread around the globe, growing anywhere with the correct climate in which they can thrive. Riesling grape varietals generally require much cooler climatic conditions than many other white grapes, and they are generally considered to be a very 'terroir expressive' varietal, meaning that the features and characteristics of the terroir they are grown on comes across in the flavors and aromas in the bottle. It is this important feature which has allowed Riesling wines to be elevated into the category of 'fine' white wines, as the features of the top quality bottles are generally considered to be highly unique and offer much to interest wine enthusiasts.
Below is an ever-changing listing of wines that we consider to be “collectible”, wines that are rare, exceptional, back-vintage gems, or a combination of the 3. Many are list-only wines, which are not normally offered for retail. These wines, which make great gifts, will improve from additional bottle age, when properly stored, and may show the greatest potential to increase in value. All are in-stock with very, very limited quantity. Every one of these spectacular wines was purchased from private sellers and has undergone very strict vetting for provenance, authenticity and condition.
