2019 Mosbacher Forster Musenhang Erste Lage trocken Riesling

2019 Mosbacher Forster Musenhang Erste Lage trocken Riesling


The Musenhang is from limestone soils at the very top of the hill in Forst, right up against the forest. I would say that the Mosbachers are somewhat reknowned for this bottling, as its cool, chiseled limestone punch and citrus fruit freshness offer an undeniably complex Forster experience at a pittance of a ticket price. This bottling is always picked later, and always has a smidge higher acidity than its Erste Lage stablemates. I would say that the ’16 has a gentler sense of attack (8.somethin’ g/L acidity, which ain’t low…) versus the ’15s electric sense of tension (10g/L acidity!), but I think that on a given day and with a given plate, I may prefer the 2016’s inviting sense of playfulness versus the raw power of the 2015. Again, this presents another mixed 6pk opportunity that will offer wonderful comparative tasting. A little * awarded here. 13% alc.

“Mosbacher says she harvested this parcel located high up against the woods 10 or 12 days later than the corresponding Elster, and the result was nearly a degree more of finished alcohol. Fresh lime and green apple are perfumed with lily-of-the-valley and heliotrope. The silky palate features abundant apple and lime juiciness underlain by wet stone, and the refreshingly sustained finish carries with it seductive inner-mouth floral perfume.” 91 points David Schildknecht for the 2014, NOT THE 2015/2016 OFFERED HERE
