2018 Ansgar Clusserath Riesling Spatlese Trittenheimer Apotheke (750ml)

Riesling from Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Germany


The 2018 Trittenheimer Apotheke Riesling Spätlese is deep and flinty on the precise, attractively reductive, floral and salty nose. Intense and juicy on the palate, this is a lean and precise but dense and elegant Spätlese with a stimulating grip, minty aroma and salty-piquant finish. The acidity is fine but precise as a laser sword. After the delicious 2017, the 2018 is another great, highly digestible Spätlese from Eva Clüsserath. 8.5% alcohol. Tasted from AP 04 19 in May 2020.

Pronounced licorice nose, then a stunning interplay of aromatic grape sweetness, then a lot of herbal power at the finish. Drink or hold.
