I was glad to see a Treppchen Kabinett again in the lineup, as it isn’t always made. It presents classic red slate aromatics clear as a bell, of little red fruits and spice. In the mouth, it is juicy and bright, offering both its red fruit charms and a certain open knit ease, all delivered with a dancy playfulness. This is plain lovely…..a little * awarded here.
“The 2021er Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett was made from fruit picked at 79° Oechsle and was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar (around 50 g/l). Quite restrained and smoky at first, it develops a nicely attractive and fresh nose of canned yellow peach, anise, greengage, Conference pear, and lozenge. The wine is nicely juicy and creamy on the elegantly round and fruity palate. The finish has fresh herbal and anise driven elements giving more freshness to the whole experience. 2029-2041 “91 Mosel Fine Wines
