Tasting Notes

AP: 22 19. The 2018er Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling TBA Alte Reben lange GK comes from botrytized fruit harvested at a full 200° Oechsle in the classical part of the vineyard, and was fermented down to fully noble-sweet levels of residual sugar. It offers a stunning nose made of candy floss, almond cream, raisin, date, baked pineapple, dried strawberry, and fine spices. The wine is saturating and sweet on the otherwise incredibly complex and multi-layered palate. The finish seems endless even if still packed with the sweetness of a Tokaji Essencia. This will certainly need a few decades to absorb its sweetness but the result will be worth the patience. What a stunner! 2043-2118

Score: 98Jean Fisch & David Rayer, Mosel Fine Wines, August 2019

From a very old plot close to the sundial and picked at 245° Oechsle, Christian Hermann's golden-yellow colored 2018 Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese Alte Reben (Long Gold Capsule) is discreet and fine yet deep and flinty on the spicy, highly elegant and remarkably pure nose that displays lovely notes of zesty lemon and stone fruit only after two days in the opened bottle. Tea, lemon and very fine flint and Riesling aromas lead to an oily-textured, very rich and sweet but also fresh, piquant, utterly elegant and seamless palate with a stimulatingly clear, fresh and even slightly salty finish. This is a delicious, highly concentrated sweet wine with great finesse and aging potential. The wine was bottled with 6% alcohol and not less than 470 grams per liter of residual sugar lifted by 11 grams per liter of total acidity. Thanks to three hectares of vines in the best part of the cru, Hermann selected 60 liters of TBA. Tasted in July 2019, a week after the bottling. 2030-2100
