Legally, this isn't dry. However, in spite of that, it's a wonderful dry wine for elegant fish dishes. Deep and complex with herbal notes and berries on the nose. Great tension, energy and minerality on the palate. Enormous aging potential, but it is already delicious.
Dry-tasting, with an intriguing complexity that makes you pause and reflect on each sip. Emerging flavors of spearmint, slate and white pepper draw you in, while a mix of Bosc pear and clementine captivate you. The long, mineral-driven finish makes you reach for another taste. This is harmonious now, but will reward those who store it for several years. (AZ)
This zesty, penetrating Riesling is sourced from low-yielding grapes in the best parcels of the producer’s legendary Abtsberg vineyards. It’s intensely smoky and earthen on the nose but boasts tart tangerine and lemon flavors glazed with honey and steel. A complex, captivating wine that’s lovely already but will likely improve through 2030.
The 2017 Abtsberg Superior is a very good wine in the making, but it does not show quite the precision and cut of the 2016 version. The quite complex bouquet offers up an elegant blend of lime, apple, slate, a hint of petrol, wild yeasts, citrus peel and a touch of lilacs in the upper register. On the palate the wine is medium-full, focused and nicely balanced, with good mineral drive, a respectable core and a long, vibrant and quite wide open finish. This is quite tasty, but it does not seem to have quite the same depth and structural integrity of the 2016 Superior.
