A mind-blowing wine for this category that has enormous brilliance and succulence, but also a great mineral freshness that literally takes your breath away. How can you resist it now? Who is willing to wait 10, 20, 30 years for this?
From small terraces on gray slate and fermented in oak fuders, the 2016 (Leiwen) Laurentiuslay Riesling Spätlese opens with a very clear and aromatic bouquet of slate and mango aromas. Lush, round and juicy on the palate, with piquant acidity and lingering salinity, this is a mouth-filling, very elegant, vital, stimulating and mineral Spätlese with a crisp salty finish. Excellent! One of finest Spätlese ever produced here? (SR)
Scents of fresh lime, orange and white peach are laced with fennel, honeysuckle and orange blossom. A seductively silken palate delivers refreshingly bright fruit and inner-mouth perfume such as the nose anticipated. This finishes with admirable animation, impeccable balance and luscious length. It was quite slow to reach the point at which the Loewens thought it appropriate to bottle, and the extra time spent on its lees was clearly beneficial. (SD)
