Aha! And so finally, after being shut out last year, I am able to offer some of the legendary Doctor Spätlese, a wine that has won best spätlese in all of Germany twice in the past 5 years. Even with the legendary historical status and non-stop accolades for recent iterations of the wine, I think that it can still be called an undervalued wine on the world stage…….I will do my best to spread this around if needed, but i’d say go for it…..who knows if people will show up for this one…..
“Super-ripe peach on the nose, as well as touches of mango, papaya and honeysuckle. Concentrated and extremely focused with intense wet-stone minerality on the medium-bodied palate. Lots of wild-herb and smoky character at the extremely long finish. Yes, you could drink this right away and it’s delicious, but it will need some years in the bottle to completely unfurl. Drinkable now, but best from 2025.” 96 Stuart Piggott
