2017 Ansgar Clusserath Riesling Kabinett Trittenheimer Apotheke (750ml)

Riesling from Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Germany


This year’s Apotheke Kabinett incorporates fruit from some recently acquired parcels high up in the Apotheke, which were this year’s last-harvested (in mid-October). It boasts an active sense of crystalline mineral impingement as well as greater transparency to underlying wet stone than did the corresponding village-level bottling. An infusion of mint and wintergreen into grapefruit, apple and lime makes for an impression at once cooling and soothing yet also animating and brightly refreshing. A palpable sense of density is allied to alcoholic levity, and sweetness is noticeable but entirely supportive. The finish is impressively sustained and irresistibly calls forth the next sip.
