Wines are in stock except the Biodynamite and the St Laurent which WE have the exclusives on and will arrive next month.
Weingut Pflüger has 49 acres of vineyards in the Pfalz region that are all grown organically, since the estate was certified in 1989. The main grape varieties are Riesling, Savignon Blanc, Gewurtztraminer and Pinot Noir. The winemaker Alexander Pflüger took over the family vineyards in 2010.
Here was the evenings lineup:
At the bar 6pm:
2018 Blanc de Noir (still, dry Rosé)- 90pts- $22.99btl
Spätburgunder Rosé trocken opens with a very intense and ripe bouquet of red berries and floral aromas. Elegant and round on the palate, this is a dense and quite full-bodied rosé with good tannin grip and the sweet richness or ripeness of the vintage.
2018 vom Quarzit Sauvignon Blanc- 90pts- $21.99btl
Sauvignon Blanc Quarzit is clear, bright, fresh and stimulatingly pure on the slightly flinty, attractively smoky and coolish, stony/vegetal nose with its somewhat artificial mango and stone fruit aromas. Lush and round on the well-structured and persistently grippy palate
2018 Buntsandstein Riesling (dry)- 92pts- $20.99btl
The lemon/lime-green colored 2018 dry Riesling offers a deep and complex, still yeasty-scented and flinty nose. Lush and juicy on the palate but with a fine and silky texture, fine tannins and a very long finish, this is an outstandingly rich and powerful Riesling
2017 Biodynamite (Riesling/Gewurz)- 93+pts-LIMITED Pre-Sell- $32.50btl
This blend is one of the most filigreed and vivacious wines I can remember. Produced from fully ripe and healthy berries, this is a fabulous dry wine that can be served as an aperitif and during the meal as well. Just incredible.
2017 Buntsandstein Spätburgunder/Pinot Noir- 91+pts- $25.50btl
Spätburgunder Buntsandstein opens with a deep, ripe, elegant and juicy, perfectly ripe bouquet. Juicy and silky as well as fresh and elegant on the palate, with a spicy vitality.
2017 Durkheimer Spätburgunder/ Pinot Noir-93pts- $28.50btl
Spätburgunder Durkheimer is intense, pure and fresh on the deep, precise and refreshing nose, where a lovey perfume of ripe and plummy fruits intertwines with weathered slate and floral aromas. Full-bodied, intense and silky on the palate, this is a charming, refined and refreshing, very long and complex Pinot Noir from dark slate. The fruit is remarkably fine in its silky, elegant texture.
2018 Friedelsheimer St Laurent – LIMITED Pre-Sell- 95+pts- $33.99btl
The St Laurent shows a super-clear, precise and coolish, spicy sour-cherry aroma along with herbal and earthy notes. Silky, elegant and finesse-full this is a full-bodied and powerful, perfectly balanced wine with depth, great finesse, vitality and tension. Concentrated, with great grip and aging potential, this is perhaps the world’s finest St Laurent. A great mix of purity, finesse and freshness with concentration, precision and tension.
