2019 Max Ferd. Richter "Estate" Riesling Mosel

SKU #1507863 John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2019 Richter Estate Riesling is again made from younger vines, like the Dry Riesling bottling (with a bit of Graacher Himmelreich included this year) and is fermented and aged similarly to that bottling. The 2019 Estate Riesling comes in at ten percent octane, carries twenty-five grams per liter of residual sugar and has eight grams per liter of acidity, so this is like a Kabinett in sweetness level this year. The wine delivers a very expressive bouquet of lime peel, pear, a nice touch of Brauneberg-like botanicals, a good base of slate and a topnote of citrus zest. On the palate the wine is bright, medium-full and beautifully balanced, with a lovely core, fine mineral drive and bounce, zesty acids and a long, complex and succulent finish. This is drinking beautifully out of the blocks, but has the balance to also age gracefully. Inner quote mark (8/2020)

K&L Notes

Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 05 20. The 2019er Riesling Richter Estate is an off-dry wine (with 30 g/l of residual sugar) made from young vines in the Brauneberger Juffer, Erdener Herrenberg, and Mülheimer Sonnenlay. It offers a beautiful and delicately creamy nose made of vineyard peach, apricot blossom, grapefruit, floral elements, and some dark spices. The wine is still slightly on the sweet side on the otherwise impeccably balanced and light-footed palate, and leaves a nice smooth feel in the long and subtle finish. This nice off-dry wine only needs a few years of patience in order to fully shine."
