2022 Emil Bauer Sex Drugs & Rock'n Roll. Just Riesling For Me Thanks!
Winery Emil Bauer & Söhne is a family business led by the fifth generation: Alexander and Martin Bauer. In the picturesque Nußdorf in Rhineland-Palatinate, the best conditions for viticulture can be found. The drastic improvements in the barrel cellar and wine press have made the quality of the wines even better in recent years, which is why both winemakers were nominated 'Newcomer of the Year' at the Falstaff. A large number of grape varieties are grown here, which is typical for the Palatinate. In addition to classics such as Riesling, Grauburgunder, Weißburgunder and Silvaner, there are also international varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc. But all this is nothing compared to what the brothers have developed in the field of label design. The revolutionary 'Just Riesling' label is already a legend and the other provocative labels are just as successful; each label tells a part of the life of the two brothers, about how they are and how they think. The Just Riesling series are also the high-end wines of Emil Bauer
All you need is riesling! Alexander and Martin Bauer not only understood this, but they clearly summarized it... both in the design and in the wine! You don't need anything else! This riesling is 2/3 raised on stainless steel and 1/3 on oak. In the glass, the No sex Just Riesling has a light yellow to greenish yellow color with a bouquet of peach and Mediterranean fruit on the palate. This is a classic riesling with a fruity, dry taste with fresh acidity. A delicious riesling with a modern label. Highly recommended with seafood and veal.
“Sex, Drugs & Rock & Roll. Just Riesling for me, thanks! Label reminds me of a sandwich board I once saw on the doorstep of a butcher: ELEPHANT ON THE SPIT! With very small written underneath: we don't have, but we do have chicken. Well, if you buy it anyway, you can easily add this Riesling from Emil Bauer. Also nice if you put what's left of the animal on a sandwich or salad the next day. Goes well with the tightness of this Pfalz. Lots of white fruit, tangerine and citrus and almost bone dry. If that butcher is good, that didn't apply to the chicken”, Harold Hamersma, assessed in DGH 2018 with an 8.
“Just Riesling for me, thanks! is on the label. They are quite right, the good sons of Emil Bauer. Who also needs sex, drugs or rock 'n' roll with this crisp Riesling with a ringing start in the glass. Innocently pure, with a lovely sweet happy ending”, Harold Hamersma, judged in DGH 2017 with an 8+.
“Germans who label wines with tongue-in-cheek texts are quite scarce. However, the brothers Alexander and Martin Bauer do so without hesitation, as witnessed by their Just Riesling 2014 for me, thanks! Behind the smile is a very good Pfalz hidden, graceful, clear-tasting, almost tingling, almost raspy and with fresh citrus tones”, Hubrecht Duijker
