2018 Richter Veldenzer Elisenberg Spatlese

2018 Richter Veldenzer Elisenberg Spatlese


As mentioned before, the monopole Elisenberg is a site that should not be overlooked by any Mosel wine lover. This example is a classic….”Even more precise and focused, this could be the definition of filigree in spätlese wine. It has a sense of intense quartz driven minerality that is awesome, dancing with the gorgeously pure fruitiness. Class in a glass!!” A little * awarded here.

“This Spätlese, harvested at a low 87° Oechsle, offers a beautifully elegant nose of pear, vineyard peach, apricot blossom and whipped cream. The wine proves gorgeously racy and vibrant on the palate, which gives it focus and tension. The finish is mouth-watering, tart and loaded with ripe fruits and minerals. This is a beautiful Spätlese in the making. 2026-2046” 93 MFW

“Sourced from old vines, the 2018 Elisenberger Riesling Spätlese was harvested in the third week of October as the very last “regular” wine (so 3.5 weeks after the Kabinett). It is based on completely healthy fruit and was vinified entirely in traditional fuders. Offering a deep and flinty bouquet, this is a lush, elegant, highly refined and stimulating Spätlese with a salty-piquant finish. Tasted from the cask in March 2019.” 94-96 Stephan Reinhardt

“The 2018er Veldenzer Elisenberg Riesling Spätlese was harvested at 92° Oechsle, and was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar (90 g/l). It offers a rather backward nose still marked by sulfur and only gradually reveals scents of pear, tannin, ginger, Provence herbs and smoke. The wine develops a gorgeous feel of fresh fruits on the comparatively juicy palate and leaves a slightly round feel of ripe orchard fruits in the finish. 2028-2048” 92 MFW
