This tank-raised bottling used to be the “Oestricher Doosberg Riesling Kabinett trocken” but the VDP insists that neither the wine’s alcoholic levity nor its vineyard of origin (it being such a “little” wine) be advertised in its name. (But you are now informed that the wine grew in fossiliferous limestone.) Pear, apple and lychee faintly garlanded in honeysuckle deliver a fetching aroma and a generously juicy, almost plush palate. Delightfully buoyant at 11.5 percent alcohol, this finishes still fruit-dominant but with subtle chalky, smoky and salty notes lending interest and saliva-inducement. (DS)
The shell limestone of Oestrich favours the fruitier side of Riesling and the Spreitzer brothers have managed to coax some alluring citrus-fruit aromas out of the 2015 vintage. Sweet grapefruit with animating acidity produces a delightfully refreshing character. Charming and seductive. (MS)
