Other Reviews....
The 2019 Krettnacher Euchariusberg Riesling Kabinett #13 Athuro is high-precision Riesling at its very best! Very pure, fresh and bright on the very stony nose that also displays white fruit, lemon, subtle nutmeg, leafy and green gooseberry aromas. Very delicate and salty on the palate, this is a pure, round, juicy, highly complex, finessed and elegant, persistently structured and tickling Euchariusberg with great sophistication and endless salinity. This is a fabulous, expressive, tight and terroir-driven Kabinett with 8% alcohol and an almost dramatic finish that asks for all of your patience. The parcel was taken over from Arthur Mangold, owner of the Landhaus Euchariusberg.

The 2019er Euchariusberg Riesling Kabinett Athuro (the reference to this internal cask name is provided in small print on the label) was harvested at 83° Oechsle from 15 year-old vines in the prime Euchariusberg sector of the vineyard which was classified in the highest category on the old taxation maps, and was fermented down to barely fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (approx. 40 g/l). It offers a stunning nose made of citrusy fruits, red berried fruits, herbs, spices, and wet stone. The wine proves superbly precise on the racy and focused palate as more orchard fruits mingle with minerals and some firm but ripe acidity. The finish is all about lemony raciness, subtle minerality and precision. This stunning Kabinett may prove already quite irresistible now, but it will only truly come into its own in a few years, after the flavors will have blossomed and blended together, and the sharpness receded: What a superb success!
