Picked two weeks after the Kabinett at 92 oechsle, the Spätlese finds the animating acidity (9g/L) weightlessly enrobed in silken fruit. It weightlessly gildes across the palate, its sense of expansiveness gentle and cloudlike. Its purity is self-evident, with long lingering length of buried minerality and florals. It reminds me of a more animated version of the 2011, whose silken weightlessness won it “Best Spätlese in Germany” in the Gault Millau. For fans of Spätlese, clearly not one to miss…..
