Erdener Prälat Riesling Auslese Alte Reben 2020 Dr. Hermann
"Uitzonderlijke delicate frisheid"
- Foie gras
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Picked at 97° Oechsle, the 2020 Erdener Prälat Riesling Auslese Alte Reben offers a clear, fresh and spicy-mineral bouquet of crushed (red) slate intertwined with pure, highly refined, rather discreet fruit on the nose. Round and piquant on the palate, with a very elegant, refined yet lush character, this is another perfectly balanced and super salivating Auslese from Christian Hermann's ancient higher-altitude plot of the prestigious Prälat. The acidity is frisky, the fruit perfectly interwoven and the finish stimulating, clear and fresh but long and always delicate. Extraordinary!
Mosel Fine Wines
The 2020er Erdener Prälat Riesling Auslese Alte Reben was harvested from essentially clean grapes at 99° Oechsle and was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar (91 g/l). It offers a beautiful nose made of cassis, coconut, pear, grapefruit zest, whipped cream, and fine herbal elements. The wine is beautifully zesty and alluring on the palate and leaves a stunning feel of orchard fruits packed into coconut cream in the long and focused finish. One is left with a gorgeous sensation of whipped cream, citrusy mint, and smoky elements in the gorgeously light-footed yet incredibly intense aftertaste. This stunning Auslese shines through its depth of flavors and airy nature. What a great success!
