A single-vineyard German Riesling with a beautifully balanced, juicy sweetness. This "Spatlese" style is hugely drinkable as well as age-worthy, because it is made with clean, bracing acidy and a very light body (under 10% alcohol) balanced by a generous fruit sweetness. Amazing with spicy pork and white meats, this stunning Riesling will be delicious tonight or in 30 years…
94/100 Anna Lee C. Iijima, Wine Enthusiast (2019 Vintage)
"Light as a feather yet piercing and powerful, this zippy spätlese juxtaposes luminous gooseberry and white-peach flavours against streaks of lime and cut stone. Medium sweet in style, it's an intensely ripe yet breathless, cutting wine that finishes long and pure. It is delicious already but should improve through 2035 and hold further. Drink 2021 – 2035+."
92+/100 Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2019 Vintage)
"A month after the bottling, the 2019 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spätlese is still reductive on the bright and well-concentrated nose. Concentrated and sweet on the palate, with a juicy texture, this is an intense, dense and structured Spätlese based on super ripe and concentrated fruits. Excellent and substantial yet asking for patience. Tasted at the domain in September 2020. Drink 2027 – 2060."
