2020 Hofgut Falkenstein Krettnacher Euchariusberg Riesling Auslese (Marlies)
The 2020er Krettnacher Euchariusberg Riesling Auslese (known internally as “Fuder Marlies”) comes from fruit harvested at 91° Oechsle from virgin vines and was fermented down to fully fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (75 g/l). It shows a beautifully smoky and restrained nose of herbs, wet stone, cassis, lavender, white pepper, and residues from its spontaneous fermentation. With airing fruity and riper scents of yellow peach, pear, litchi, papaya, and apricot join the party. The wine is delicately fruity and juicy and subtly honeyed on the palate and leaves a superbly focused and refreshing feel in the focused and off-dry rather than fruity finish. This is a gorgeous drinking Auslese in the making! Drink 2028-2045.
