The 2020 Bernkasteler Badstube Spätlese opens with a concentrated, finely flinty/mineral bouquet of fully ripe and slightly stewed stone fruits intermingled with iodine nuances. Dense and lush on the palate and provided with ripe, crystalline and imbedded salinity, this is a mouth-filling and quite intense Spätlese that is already accessible. 7.5% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine from AP 13 21 in July 2022.
