2020 Hofgut Falkenstein Krettnacher Euchariusberg Riesling Spatlese (Ternes)
The 2020er Krettnacher Euchariusberg Riesling Spätlese (the reference to this internal cask name is provided in small print on the label after the AP number) comes from fruit harvested at 84° Oechsle on 60-year-old vines in the prime Gross Schock sector of the vineyard and was fermented down to fully fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (40 g/l). It offers a finely aromatic, elegant, and floral nose of tangerine, vineyard peach, orange blossom, whipped almond cream, fine herbs, lead pencil, and guava. The wine develops great flavors of citrusy fruits on the very precise and intense palate. The overall feel of airiness right into the deep and hugely long finish is simply remarkable. Lime, spices, and smoke make for a multi-layered and hugely dynamic feel in the aftertaste. This airy, zesty yet hugely complex Spätlese is simply stunning! Drink 2028-2045.
