Crystal clear fruit of white peach, small yellow plum and a hint of gooseberry. Delicate, somewhat fragile acid structure with outstanding spice. Refreshing, animating and very elegant.
Mosel Fine Wines: “AP: 06 21. The 2020er Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spätlese was made from grapes harvested at 91° Oechsle and was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar (72 g/l). It offers a beautifully refined and refreshing nose of anise, thyme, rosemary, white pepper, and yellow peach. The wine proves sweet and creamy as well as comparatively soft and smooth on the palate. Its velvety side makes it taste more like an Auslese than a playful Spätlese. The finish is however superbly light-footed yet needs to integrate its sweetness (expect a decade of cellaring). As the Auslese it is, it will please lovers of cuddly, sweet, and light-feathered Riesling. It may well exceed our expectations at maturity if it develops more freshness and playfulness on the palate. 2030-2045.”
