C.H. Berres 1990 Erdener Treppchen Beerenauslese Riesling (Mosel-Saar-Ruwer)

Editors' Choice

It's rare to see older vintages of German wines released straight from the estate cellars, so if you haven't had the chance to sample older German dessert wines, this may be worth a try. It's pretty darn good, too, with lovely clover blossom and honey scents leading into dried apricot and juicy pineapple flavors. Don't expect a thick, syrupy wine—this has a light touch and impeccable balance that might best be paired with foie gras, fresh fruit or mild cheeses rather than full-blown dessert. Reasonably priced, considering the prädikat and age. Joe Czerwinski
