Description

 Alex tells me that, in spite of the challenges of the long cool growing season, he has made 2021s that have pretty much the same must weights as his 2019/2020s, right in the sweet spot that he is looking for.  This is not the case with the overwhelming majority of colleagues.  So I expect very very good things in a highly animated, dancing vein of seamless acidity meets charm……
“The 2020er Goldtröpfchen Riesling Kabinett, as it is referred to on the central part of the label, was made from fruit harvested at 81° Oechsle in the south-west facing Alz sector (next to the Gärtchen) of the vineyard and was fermented to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (42 g/l). It offers a gorgeous nose made of pear, melon, citrusy fruits, cassis, a hint of apricot blossom, earthy elements, and some whipped cream. The wine develops the subtly creamy yet also firmly racy structure of a Spätlese or light Auslese from the 1990s on the palate and leaves a great smooth-racy tension in the long finish. Reductive earthy elements drive the after-taste at the moment but these elements will give way to superbly fresh one at maturity. 2030-2050 “93 Mosel Fine Wines for the 2020, NOT THE 2021 OFFERED HERE
