Reichsgraf Von Kesselstatt Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling Spatlese 2013
|Brand||Reichsgraf Von Kesselstatt|
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Riesling Spatlese Piesporter Goldtropfchen opens very clear and precise on the nose intermixing cool, slate aromas with grapefruit and white peach flavors. Intense and piquant on the palate, this is a surprisingly straight, pure, stimulating, piquant and salty Spätlese bottled with 7.5% alcohol and a rather moderate residual sugar of 67 grams per liter. The high acidity of 10.5 grams make this a long-distance runner.
Wine SpectatorShows a firm herbal essence to the mineral, green apple and green citrus flavors, with a creamy texture. Vibrant acidity powers this along, presenting a finish filled with notes of wild herb. Drink now through 2038. 1,650 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastWhile the nose is demure, suggesting only a hint of muted apple and pear, the sweet-tart palate on this spry wine is full of yellow-cherry flavor. Bracing acidity wraps the finish up tight and brisk.
