Tasting Notes

This offers a stunning nose of almond, pineapple and coconut on the nose. The wine is still on the rich side on the palate but shows already a great mineral touch which will bring freshness and focus to wine in due time. While already extremely enjoyable now, this Auslese GK in all but name has not yet reached its peak and will even gain in aromatic precision with further bottle age, as Doctor wines invariably do. So patience is needed! 2026-2041

Score: 93Jean Fisch & David Rayer, Mosel Fine Wines (30), March 2016

Textbook Mosel flavors of peach, lime and slate highlight this silky-smooth, expressive Riesling. So appealing and juicy, you want to drink it now, but this will develop. Drink now through 2028. 700 cases made.
