Electric acidity and tons of wet-stone minerality make this concentrated wine a star in this vintage of Mosel Spatlese. Succulent mid-palate, then a brilliant, driving finish that could wake the dead.
Wine Tasting Notes
This vineyard is so steep that, long ago, stone steps ("Treppchen") were built into the hillside to help workers reach the vines. The iron-infused, red slate soil produces wines that are muscular and complex, with an intense mineral finish. The Spatlese designation means that the grapes get an extra week or two of hang time, which helps them develop higher ripeness and deeper flavors.
