This wine showcases the quintessential Apotheke finesse, in a vintage defined by a filigree, featherlight character. It is taken from the very top of the hill, in the Vogelsang portion of the hillside. If you adore the filigreed dancing style of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr, this one has your name on it and then some.
“The 2020er Apotheke Riesling Kabinett, as it is referred to on the central part of the label, was made from fruit harvested at 83° Oechsle in the Vogelsang part of the vineyard situated high up the hill, and was fermented to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (47 g/l). It offers a subtle nose made of pear, whipped cream, melon, cardamom, floral elements, and smoke. The wine proves delightfully light-footed and playful on the palate, where some racy acidity is currently not yet fully integrated into the delicately creamy elements. The finish is however already beautifully focused, intense, and persistent. This modern-day equivalent of a Spätlese or light Auslese from the 1990s now just needs a bit of patience in order to shine! 2030-2050” 93 Mosel Fine Wines
