"The 2020er Thörnicher Ritsch Riesling Spätlese Trocken was made from fruit picked at 88° Oechsle in a prime vineyard situated in the central part of the vineyard. It offers a gorgeous nose made of reductive elements (nut, wet stone, spices) which gradually give way to beautifully refreshing scents of herbs and spices. The wine is beautifully playful on the palate and leaves a stunningly fragrant and feather-light feel in the long and refined finish. This dry wine will prove irresistible to lovers of feather-light and fragrant expressions of the genre! Packing so many flavors into 11.5% of alcohol strength remains one of the great features of dry Mosel Riesling! 2022-2028."
