Hofgut Falkenstein Herrenberg Riesling Spätlese ‘Feinherb’ 2020


Wonderful wine, that displays the Saar’s scintillating raciness and it’s capacity for richness, complexity and power. Aromatically complex with petrichor, kummel spirit, gardenia, lavender, blackcurrant, green apple, which peach, green snake (as in the lolly) and preserved lemon. Richness and power, combine with lightness and elegance. Poised and regal with a long carry and the faintest mineral grip. One of the best, if not the best feinherb’s we have ever tasted. Waters Wine Co

The 2020er Niedermennig Herrenberg Riesling Spätlese Feinherb Palm (the reference to this internal cask name is provided in small print on the label after the AP number) comes from 60-70-year-old vines in the south-facing Langenberg sector of the vineyard and was fermented down to off dry levels of residual sugar (29 g/l). It feels quite restrained and very smoky at first and only gradually reveals its hugely complex and multi-faceted nose of anise, vineyard peach, mint, cassis, white flowers, greengage, candied lime, rosemary, and almond. The wine is superbly well-balanced on the palate where a hint of whipped cream and white and yellow peach add to an overwhelming sense of complexity and finesse. One does not question the residual sugar at play as it is only a magic support for lightness, delicacy, and complexity. The hugely long and deep finish is very impressive. This is a modern-day legend in the making! 2024-2040. 96 points – Mosel Fine Wines, Issue 57
