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.
2020 Richter Veldenzer Elisenberg Spatlese
“The 2020er Veldenzer Elisenberg Riesling Spätlese was made from fruit picked at 87° Oechsle and was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (73 g/l). It offers a simply stunning nose made of white peach, apple, pear, passion fruit, and floral elements. The wine is beautifully juicy and animating on the palate and leaves a stunning feel of racy juicy fruits in the long finish. The aftertaste is subtly exotic, multi-layered, hugely animating, and persistent. What a huge success! 2030-2050” 97 Mosel Fine Wines
