2018 Eva Fricke Lorcher Schlossberg Riesling Spatlese

$136.00
Only 5 bottles left
The 2018 Lorcher Schlossberg Riesling Spätlese is coolish, precise and flinty on the more reductive and lime-scented nose than its Klosterberg sibling. Lush yet crystalline and salty-piquant on the palate, this is a generous, enormously lush and super sexy Spätlese with succulent fruit that covers your palate. There are 90 grams of residual sugar, but there is nothing left but gorgeously ripe Riesling fruit from rocky slate. A fabulous Spätlese bottled with 8% alcohol. Tasted from AP 9 19. You can drink it now, but don't be sad if there is nothing left in 20+ years. Read more

Grey slate and chalk soils.  Compared with the Kiedricher Klosterberg, this smells a little more floral, less pear and more apricot. Sweeter on the palate, luscious but with a fine stony, crisp lemon freshness. Crystalline persistence, so pure. Definitely tastes sweeter than the Kiedricher Klosterberg Spätlese but perfectly balanced by the fresh acidity. Score: 17.5/20
