Tasting Notes

Nik Weis and his team harvested a meagre 80 liters of this beauty at 170-175° Oechsle on October 30, 2013. This develops a stunningly complex nose of passion fruit, pineapple, herbs and spices. The wine develops already a gorgeous touch of toffee and dried fruits on the palate and leaves a magnificently assertive, complex and creamy feel in the almost indefinite finish. We have tasted this beauty three times now over the last few years and it has gone from strength to strength: What a stunner of a TBA and a must-buy for any lovers of this style of Riesling. 2028-2063

Score: 98+Jean Fisch & David Rayer, Mosel Fine Wines, June 2017

The pale yellow (almost white) 2013 Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese offers a stunning precise and fresh as well as highly delicate bouquet with lemon zest flavoring the dense though still reductive nose. Highly concentrated and elegant on the palate where fine botrytis raisins are displayed and structured by a piquant, almost Saar-like acidity and spiciness, this noble sweet and concentrated TBA is very well focused and rather more lean than exuberant at the moment, while its aging potential should be terrific.
