Tasting Notes

Very fine and elegant on the radiant nose, the 2017 Wiltinger Braune Kupp Spätlese (AP #5) –Versteigerung– offers an excitingly cool and herbal bouquet with earthy, lime, minty, citrus and eucalyptus aromas intertwined with very clear and delicate notes of crushed and weathered slate. On the palate, this is a rich, lush and concentrated, sweet but very piquant and structured Spätlese with remarkable elegance and finesse. The finish is very long yet pure and salty, revealing stimulating grip. Tasted in June 2019.

Score: 94/95Stephan Reinhardt, RobertParker.com (244), August 2019

(Le Gallais Wiltinger braune Kupp Riesling Spätlese Auction) AP: 05 18. The 2017er Wiltinger braune Kupp Spätlese AP05 was harvested at well above 95° Oechsle, i.e. into Auslese territory, and this shows on the aromatic profile. While still backward, the wine develops a hugely complex and refined nose of melon, pear, vineyard peach, apricot blossom and smoky slate. It is beautifully elegant and playful on the palate, where the wine develops the full playful creamy yet also lively side of a clean and delicately fruity Auslese. The finish is creamy and leaves one with a beautifully zesty feel in the after-taste. This is a gorgeous light Auslese (in all but name) in the making. 2027-2047
