Hofgut Falkenstein Altenberg Riesling Spatlese Trocken 2020


From old vines, between 50 and 60 years old, a stunning array of cool aromatics. The faintest of pink colour, with beeswax, grapefruit, juniper, mint, tarragon, red delicious apple, lime zest and frangipani. Intense but not obtuse. Coiled, tense, vivid and cool flavours, including gooseberry, kiwifruit, savoury spice, tonic-like and pickled vine leaf. So bracing and utterly Saar; the most distinctive of all Rieslings. Finishing with so much naked and invigorating energy. Super long, clean and salty, utterly absorbing and refreshing. Served with a mixture of Japanese dishes. Perfection. Waters Wine Co

The 2020er Krettnacher Altenberg Riesling Spätlese Trocken comes from 50-60-year-old vines in the Enkers part of the vineyard. It displays a beautifully flowery, spicy, and herbal nose of white peach, cassis, thyme, citronella, verbena, white pepper, and smoke. The wine develops finely zesty and flowery flavours on the superbly light and almost airy palate leaves a great sense of fruity smoothness in the nicely precise and zesty finish. The aftertaste has great focus and is packed with multi layered and superbly playful flavours. This is a great dry Riesling. 2024-2035. 92 points – Mosel Fine Wines, Issue 57
