Riesling Spätlese Trocken Saumagen

2016

Words like “stunning” and “dazzling” have been invoked by the critics to describe this luxuriantly rich, dry, complex and austerely young wine. Perhaps one of the finest vintages produced at K-R to date.

"Sweet corn and lightly poached white peach, shadowed by high-toned hints of corn mash and mothball, are mingled with cardamom, gentian perfume, lemon oil and sea breeze. The impression on a silken, buoyant yet palpably dense palate is no less complex and alluring. The long finish perpetuates lusciously ripe fruit and inner-mouth perfume with zesty, spicy counterpoint, while a suggestion of chalk-infused sea water serves for intrigue and saliva-inducement. This will probably be yet more expressive once its bottling date recedes into the past, and it was only due for release in May 2018."
