Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling Spatlese 2013 (750 ml) Reichsgraf Von Kesselstatt Riesling Spatlese Scharzhofberger 2015 (750 ml) Joh. Jos. Prum Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Spatlese, Mosel 2014 (750 ml)
WA 93, WS 92

The 2013 Riesling Spatlese Piesporter Goldtropfchen opens very clear and precise on the nose intermixing cool, slate aromas with grapefruit and white peach flavors. Intense and piquant on the palate, this is a surprisingly straight, pure, stimulating, piquant and salty Spätlese bottled with 7.5% alcohol and a rather moderate residual sugar of 67 grams per liter. The high acidity of 10.5 grams make this a long-distance runner.

The bright colored 2015 Scharzhofberger Riesling Spätlese is very clear and slightly smoky on the still discreet and reductive nose. Lush and aromatic, this is a crystalline, piquant and racy Spätlese with a well structured, stimulatingly clear and salty finish. Excellent aging potential and really digestible.

There are plenty of rich, smoky notes to the roasted peach, pear tart and baked pineapple flavors of this white. Fresh acidity is very lively into the finish, which offers slate and savory accents, and plenty of black currant tones. Drink now through 2030.

Joh. Jos. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett, Mosel 2016 (750 ml) Schloss Johannisberg Grunlack Riesling Spatlese, Rheingau 2015 (750 ml) Schloss Johannisberg Silberlack Riesling Erstes Grosses Gewachs, Rheingau 2013 (750 ml)
WA 92

Cheesy fermentative overtones give way to a site-typical amalgam of fresh apple garlanded in honeysuckle and heliotrope. This is another of those Prüm Kabinetts that is watery in a positive sense of that word, combining watercolor-like transparency and wash of flavor with delicacy and refreshment. As with the corresponding Graacher, the finishing sense of wet stone and floral perfume is striking, and here a mouthwatering hint of salinity adds significantly to the appeal.

Fermented at 50% in 1,200-liter oak barrels, the 2015 Schloss Johannisberger Grünlack Riesling Spätlese opens with a very clear and piquant lemon and stony flavor, with yellow stone fruit and lactic aromas (of burnt milk) in the background. Very complex. On the palate, this 2015 Spätlese is piquant and creamy, very fresh and pure, with a remarkable acidity (of nine grams per liter) which balanced the 77 grams of residual sugar perfectly. This is a very finesse-full and stimulating Spätlese with mineral grip and tension. Gorgeous.

The intense yellow 2013 Schloss Johannisberger Silberlack Riesling GG offers an attractively cool and distinguished bouquet of ripe peaches and tropical fruit aromas intermixed with flinty and earthy flavors and a touch of oak (100% fermented in 1200 l Stückfässer). The palate is very round, fruit intense and elegant with lovely piquant notes that lead to a salty finish with a very good length and citrus flavors in the spicy aftertaste. Again this is a very noble and aristocratic, at the same time stimulating, Riesling that can be enjoyed for far more than a decade.
