2016 Reinhold Haart Wintricher Ohligsberg Riesling Spatlese Mosel

SKU #1412481 94 points James Suckling

 Almost baroque in its lushness (everything from ripe banana, apricot and cassis), but there's also a firm acidity behind all the extravagance that makes the finish breathtakingly fresh. A powerful wine that is begging for you to pair it with shrimp and chili. The acidity finish is like whiplash.  (7/2017)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2016 Ohligsberger Spätlese is very intense and fruity on the nose, provided with ripe Riesling and wet slate flavors. Round, lush and mouthfilling, this is a beautifully fine, slatey and enormously stimulating Spätlese that delivers great drinking pleasure. This is terribly pure, vital and slatey—a picture-book Spätlese from the Mosel. Tasted March 2016. (SR)  (4/2018)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

 Bracing lime acidity and earthen notes of crushed stone and salt mark this complex spätlese. Bracing white grapefruit and lemon flavors abound on the palate, softened by a honeyed sweetness and hint of caramelized sugar on the finish. This taut racy wine that should improve through 2030, hold further. (AI)  (8/2018)

91 points Vinous

 Kiwi, peach and grapefruit combine for a lusciously fruit-dominated performance. While this displays neither the textural richness nor the brightness and invigoration of its Goldtröpfchen counterpart, it exhibits impeccably balanced sweetness and a soothingly sustained, subtly smoke-tinged finish. (DS)  (1/2018)

K&L Notes

93 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 42 17. The 2016er Ohligsberg Spätlese delivers a beautifully elegant nose of yellow peach, tangerine, pear and a touch of melon. The wine is gorgeously playful on the palate as the acidity is nicely blending into the juicy fruits. The finish is stunningly elegant and refined and leaves a great spicy and intense feel in the after-taste. 2026-2046." (07/2017)
