This dry Riesling is a limited-production “great growth” from a parcel of extremely old vines in Erdener Treppchen that lies directly above Erdener Prälat. The fruit comes from vines aged 100+ years, growing on red Devonian slate.
The aromas of flowers and leaves dripping after a tropical storm make this very seductive. Also a hint of anise (a signature aroma for the site). This is like an elegant lady who demands to be treated appropriately. In spite of the creaminess on the mid-palate it finishes very clean and quite mineral. – Notes from James Suckling
