Other Reviews....
Tasted as a cask sample, the 2020 Erdener Treppchen GG Alte Reben promises a deep and concentrated, very complex and full-bodied wine with remarkable intensity. The wine is rich but refined and salty, well balanced and harmonious, revealing a long and intense, dense and sustainable finish. Tasted in Wiesbaden in August 2021. Drink 2026 - 2045.

Extremely intense, anise nose with plenty of yeast, too. Excellent concentration and breathtaking raciness. Everything focused so tightly and that really lifts the energy level. Very exciting, diamond-bright finish.

Quite straightforward on the nose with aromas of ripe, almost baked apple and the merest notion of ginger. On the palate juicy apple is joined by a little sweet citrus fruit and just a smidgeon of spice. Despite being on the sweeter side of Grosse Gewächse, the Treppchen is most lively and refreshing. Drink 2021-2028.

The 2020er Erdener Treppchen Riesling Alte Reben, as it is referred to on the main label (the reference to GG is left for the back label), comes from very old un-grafted vines in the prime Onnerts and Herzlay sectors (situated just above and next to the Prälat), and was fermented with ambient yeasts and aged in oak for almost 12 months. This cask sample ready for bottling proves quite non-saying and smoky at first before fine scents of anise, minty herbs, grapefruit, floral elements, and licorice emerge from the glass. The wine is superbly playful and spicy on the very long and smoky finish. The after-taste is very pure and long. Drink 2025-2035.
