With a subtle fragrance of medicinal herbs the wine punches almost above its designation of simple estate wine, but on the palate things are more straightforward with a pleasant juicy expression of grapefruit. Easy-drinking trocken. (MS)
Sourced from Oestrich’s trio of Einzellagen – Doosberg, Lenchen and Klosterberg – this once again unchaptalized cuvée is delightfully buoyant and, surprisingly, weighs in at more than half a percent less alcohol than its 2014 counterpart. Succulent but prominently, pithily pit-tinged white peach and mirabelle mingle with sweaty, mouthwatering salinity. This boasts fine concentration and length for a generic, its finish at once soothing, cleansing, and refreshing. “A lot of this came from young vines,” explained Spreitzer, “and generally from relatively loose clusters, well-ventilated ones that could be left until later to harvest.” And yet, it’s legally dry (with five grams of residual sugar) at just 11.5 percent alcohol!
