2018 Hofgut Falkenstein 'Krettnacher Euchariusberg' Riesling Auslese - Mosel, Germany. 750ml.
The 2018er Krettnacher Euchariusberg Auslese (known internally as “Gross Schock Kupp”) was harvested at 95° Oechsle from young vines in the upper part of the prime Gross Schock sector of the vineyard, and fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar (80 g/l of residual sugar). It offers a great nose of whipped cream, vineyard peach, earl grey, apricot flower, mint and a hint of exotic fruits. The wine is beautifully balanced and multi-layered on the ripe and delicately exotic palate. This may come over as being slightly richer in style at first but a superbly energetic and ripe acidity makes for a great balance and freshness. This is a great Auslese in the making. 2028-2048
