I did taste the ’21, and it is is plain show stoppingly beautiful…..it is arresting in its sense of class and weightlessly expansive gentle sense of power, that just sails on forever in echoing layers of flavor. This stuff is outrageously good to my taste, and it seems to the folks at MFW as well. Get what you can justify here, and thank me later….a little * awarded here.
“The 2021er Trittenheimer Apotheke Riesling Spätlese Alte Reben was made from fruit harvested at 89° Oechsle on 60-70-year-old vines in the steep Mockenlay and Kaulsbohr part of the vineyard and was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar (68 g/l). It offers a superbly complex, very fresh and animating nose of grapefruit zest, candied lime, minty herbs, white flowers, greengage, prune, smoke, and laurel. The wine is refined and chiseled on the beautifully playful and layered palate. It is delicately airy and almost light-weighted, yet the finish is focused and hugely animating as the acidity is vigorous. This very pure Spätlese is stunning. 2031-2046+” 94 MFW
