Two lovely German Rieslings

Like most members of the wine trade I have a fondness for Riesling. It rocks. And especially from Germany: nowhere else makes Rieslings that are quite the same. Here are two good ones, both new to me.

Pauly Lieser Niederberg ‘Helden’ Riesling Trocken 2011 Mosel, Germany
Really fine, fresh nose of melon, citrus and grapefruit. The palate is crisp and tight but also has generous pear, melon and lime flavours. Really taut and quite complex with beautiful precision. Dry but generously fruity. 92/100

Langenwalter Weisenheimer Burgweg Riesling Trocken 2011 Pfalz, Germany
Deep yellow colour. Powerful and concentrated with lovely lime, melon and spice notes. The palate is crisp, dry and textured with some honey, herbs, melon, spice and lime. Real intensity of flavour. Good acid, but not austere. 92/100
