Ratings and Reviews
“This is classic young Spätlese the way it was 20 years ago,” averred Constantin Richter, and while he’s too young to know that firsthand, I’m more than old enough to testify that he is correct! Modest residual sugar coupled with efficacious acidity from vines intentionally permitted to hang a bit more fruit so that later harvest will still be at modest must weight, combine for a rivetingly flavorful and downright delicate Riesling that will leave you with far too many facets to contemplate for sweetness to be one of them. Brightly juicy lemon and grapefruit tinged with sloe berry inform a silken-textured palate and display transparency to stony, alkaline nuances, with nips of cress and piquancy of citrus seeds adding to the invigoration of a mouth-shaking and mouthwateringly saline finish.
