2011 Zilliken Saarburger Rausch Diabas

2011 Zilliken Saarburger Rausch Diabas


Here is John Gilman’s review:

“The 2011 Rausch Diabas is another absolutely monumental wine in the making this year. This is the Feinherb version of Grosses Gewächs, if you like, and this style has really excelled in the 2011 vintage. The stunning nose soars from the glass in a blaze of tart orange, fresh pineapple, crystalline minerality, wild yeasts, lemon grass, a touch of incipient saltiness and an overtly smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish, pure and magically complex, with a superb core of fruit, laser-like focus and simply stunning length and grip on the brilliant finish. I did not write down what the residual sugar was on this wine, but it comes across as just slightly off-dry in style. The inner sense of elegance and grace in this very intensely flavored wine is almost humbling! A simply stunning young wine. (drink 2017-2040)” 95 points
