2018 Carl Loewen Thörnicher Ritsch Riesling Grosses Gewächs Mosel

SKU #1504355 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark You can almost smell the bitterness of the lemons here, such is the intensity of the citrus and green-fruit pith. Then come overtures of green paprika, five spice and Granny Smith apples. The medium-to full-bodied palate delivers a surround-sound impression of acidity that’s integrated into the edgy oiliness. Drink now or hold. Inner quote mark (9/2019)

K&L Notes

93pts Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 15 19. The 2018er Ritsch GG, as it is referred to on the consumer label, comes from old and partially still un-grafted vines and was fermented spontaneously and aged in traditional Fuder cask for 6 months. It offers a superb nose driven by candied lemon, chalky elements, Provence herbs, pear and smoky slate. The wine is still rather backward and driven by mineral and herbal elements on the palate. It leaves some bitter-fruity flavors of ginger and herbs in the long and quite intense finish. This wine proves powerful but never over-powering as it has a nice core structure. This impressive dry Riesling only need a few years of bottle aging to come together and shine. 2023-2033." (06/2019)
