SKU #1649374 92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Effusive white peach fruit with lemon blossom and fresh garden herb aromas. A beautifully crafted, barely off-dry riesling with so much juicy fruit and a refreshing acidity that pulls you inexorably back for more of this vibrant elixir. Drink or hold. Screw cap. Inner quote mark (8/2022)

Outer quote mark Bottled with 18 grams per liter of residual sugar, the 2021 Rheingau Riesling Tradition is the off-dry version of the dry estate Riesling. It opens with clear and aromatic redcurrant fruit, and it's light and fresh on the palate. This is a light, round, fresh and piquant, mouth-filling and palatable Riesling with stimulating salinity and phenolic grip. 11% stated alcohol. Screw cap. Tasted in July 2022.

Outer quote mark As I noted last year, the Riesling Tradition bottling here is made from the exact same vineyards as the Estate Riesling Trocken, with this bottling is fermented in stainless steel tanks, so that the fermentation can be stopped with a bit more residual sugar still in the wine. The 2021 Tradition comes in at eleven percent octane, sports 23.1 grams of residual sugar and acids of 8.6 grams. It already has a lovely nose, delivering scents of apple, nectarine, complex soil tones, lilacs and white lilies. On the palate the wine is bright, fullish and complex, with a nice touch of sweetness on the attack, zesty acids, fine soil undertow and a long, nicely balanced finish. This is very tasty and really not particularly sweet, given the snappy acids of the vintage. 2022-2045. Inner quote mark (11/2022)
