93 points Mosel Fine Wines
"The 2018er Wolfer Goldgrube Riesling Spätlese was harvested at a full 96° Oechsle on old un-grafted vines in the Portz, Gelbe Weide, and Reiler sectors of the vineyard, and was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar (86 g/l).
It offers a beautiful nose made of melon, starfruit, minty herbs, lemongrass and delicately creamy and smoky elements. The wine has the suave creaminess of a light Auslese on the rather pure and elegant palate. It leaves one with a delicately tickly feel of fresh fruits and aniseed herbs in the lingering finish. 2028-2048."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Wolfer Goldgrube is a prime Mosel site planted with rare, ungrafted vines hovering around 80 years of age. Its value stems from its positioning on the steep, Southwest-facing outer bank on one of the sharp turns in the Mosel river, creating an inimitable natural suntrap. The site had once been one of the Mosel's darlings, but due to a lack of a modern champion had fallen out of consumer favor.
