Description

“The 2019er Marienburg Riesling Spätlese, as it is referred to on the main part of the consumer label and with a golden capsule, was made from fruit picked at 102° Oechsle from a selection of partially (10%) botrytized fruit and was fermented down to noble-sweet levels of residual sugar. It offers a superbly backward nose made of vineyard peach, cassis, elderflower, some almond cream, a hint of apricot, fine spices, and smoke. The wine proves superbly delineated and focused on the comparatively light-footed palate and leaves a light and dancing feel in the hugely precise and profound finish. The after-taste is subtly honeyed, packed with fresh fruits, herbal elements, and zest. This gorgeous wine cut along the lines of a light-footed expression of Auslese GK is truly superb! 2029-2049” 95 Mosel Fine Wines

“Busch’s 2019 Marienburg Spätlese Goldkapsel is clear and noble on the intense yet highly elegant and slightly flinty nose that displays perfectly selected Riesling fruit intertwined with floral notes. Tropical aromas on the light and filigreed yet intense and perfectly balanced palate, this gold capsule has a graceful structure and salty-piquant acidity. Notes of mango/pineapple juice fill every corner of this great, pure, refined and highly stimulating Spätlese. A fabulous Riesling and picture-book Spätlese that is impossible to spit! 7.5% alcohol. Tasted from AP 1320 in July 2020.” 94 Stephan Reinhardt
