So Mosel wines are light? Yes they are and this one only has 7% alcohol, but it is staggeringly concentrated for that figure. In spite of having a slew of citrus and stone-fruit aromas, it is also very subtle and graceful. The finish is as pure and straight as a laser beam. Drink or hold.
This is the only Himmelreich Spätlese this year and it is a beauty. The wine has eleven grams per liter of acidity, sixty-five grams per liter of residual sugar and comes in at a cool seven percent alcohol. The bouquet is pure and will probably be quite extroverted once it has recovered from the recent bottling, offering up scents of pear, orange zest, salty minerality, bee pollen and a topnote of lime blossoms. On the palate the wine is medium-full, vibrant and focused, with a lovely core of fruit, superb focus and cut, a long, perfectly balanced and electric finish. Fine, fine juice. 2025-2075.
