"Harvested at 92° Oechsle, this offers a gorgeous nose of pear, yellow peach, quince and apricot tree flower. The wine is hugely elegant and refined on the palate and leaves a clean and juicy feel with the presence of a light Auslese on the palate. 2025-2045" October 2016

"Lush and creamy, with unctuous red peach, apricot and kiwifruit flavors that are backed by fresh acidity. Shows hints of muesli on the finish, revealing some buttery accents. Drink now through 2030. 420 cases made." December 2016
"The estate of Max Ferdinand Richter has been owned by the Richter family for more than 300 years. Today this enterprise, owned and run by winemaker Dirk Richter, is one of the leading producers of top Rieslings in the heart of the central Mosel area with total holdings of 43 acres and an annual production of about 10,500 cases. Richter not only produces fine wines that are well known throughout the world, such as Erdener Treppchen, Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, and Brauneberger Juffer, but also two coveted top wines: Mülheimer Helenenkloster and Veldenzer Elisenberg. The possession of these vineyards dates back to 1813 when their ancestor, in an extreme demonstration of personal courage, succeeded in preventing the sacking of Mülheim by Napoleon. They produce a wide variety of wines from estate-grown grapes that reflect the individual style of each single vineyard. The terroir of their steep vineyard sites is generally fresh weathering grey slate with different compositions of ferruginous (Brauneberg), mineral quartz (Veldenz), or clay soils (Graach, Erden, Wehlen, Mülheim), which determine character and flavour. The wines of Max Ferdinand Richter enjoy worldwide acclaim. They are ambassadors of the rich cultural heritage of the unique Mosel landscape." Winery
