About

91

From younger parcels (30+ years old) in premier and grand crus, the 2018 Richter Estate Riesling opens with a very delicate, bright, remarkably elegant, refined and floral bouquet of iron-rich slate and perfectly ripe, concentrated Riesling fruit. Mainly sourced in the Juffer but also in the Himmelreich and Treppchen, this is a lush and generous but highly delicate and filigreed Riesling with a salty-piquant, intense and mouth-filling finish. The acidity is stunningly fresh but tartaric. This is a gorgeous Mosel Riesling, and I guess this wine has never been any better. Bottled in early March and tasted in late March 2019.
-- Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate

Product Description:

From the Winemakers' Website: This Estate Riesling is fresh & full of pure orchard fruits, a mix of peach, raspberry & elderberry blossom. Upfront there is a little sweetness that freshens the taste buds; it dances in your mouth & swings gently on your palate. The mineral texture carries the perfect balance of residual sugar & vibrant, elegant fruit acid. It finishes with gentle clean dry lingering structure. A very zesty Riesling. Food Matching: Light & spicy dishes and sushi
