2020 Hofgut Falkenstein Krettnacher Euchariusberg Riesling Kabinett (Kugel Peter)
The 2020er Krettnacher Euchariusberg Riesling Kabinett Kugel Peter (the reference to this internal cask name is provided in small print on the label after the AP number) was harvested at 82° Oechsle on 50-year-old grafted vines in the prime Gross Schock 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 (40 g/l). It offers a subtle and delicate nose of dried white flowers, herbs, star fruit, cherry, pine, and some earthy spices. The wine still proves rather reserved and compact on the palate as only hints of candied citrusy fruits, mint, and spices come through at this stage. The finish has more energy and focus and leaves a beautifully refreshing feel of precision and raciness. Drink 2028-2040.
