2018 Richter Erdener Treppchen Spatlese

2018 Richter Erdener Treppchen Spatlese


Ditto this one, I didn’t get to taste it. The Treppchen is, quite literally, one of the most insane vineyards in the world. Google images of it. It looks like a craggy cliff of red slate that even goats would shy away from. People often wear harnesses when they work it, as the slope will not forgive missteps. I am psyched to be able to offer such a noble example of the site…..sounds plain fantastic from the review.

“This Spätlese was harvested at a comparatively low 89° Oechsle in the privileged Busslay sector from a parcel still trained on single pole. Bright in color, this wine offers a very subtle nose of white peach, melon, pear, grapefruit and dried herbs. It is gorgeously fruity and elegant on the palate and leaves a stunning feel of white minerals and fresh herbs in the long finish. This is a gorgeous wine in the making and a huge success. 2025-2045” 93 points Mosel Fine Wines

“The 2018er Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spätlese was harvested at a f ull 94° Oechsle in the prime (“dark red”) Busslay sector of the vineyard, and was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar (85 g/l). It offers a gorgeous nose of white peach, fine herbs, floral elements and smoke. The wine develops the gorgeous juiciness of an old-style “drinking Auslese” with orchard fruits, whipped sour cream and a nice kick of zest on the palate and leaves one with plenty of mouthwatering fruits in the long and playful finish. 2028-2058” 93 MFW
