Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Picked at 105° Oechsle, the 2020 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Auslese (Gold Capsule) is the negative selection of the TBA. The wine opens with very clear, precise, amazingly nuanced, pure and delicate yet also intense fruit intertwined with layers of slate and minerals. Very pure and immediately salty and salivating on the palate, with vibrantly fresh but fine acidity and perfectly ripe and refined fruit, this is a fabulous, intense, concentrated and anything but fat or generous Auslese. It is rather serious and discreet but bears a lot of energy and huge aging capacity due to its vibrant acidity, sustainable salinity, remarkable grip and finesse. A fabulous wine and one of the radiant highlights of the 2020 portfolio from Christian Hermann, who has established himself as one of the greatest sweet Riesling producers in the Mosel in recent years.

The 2020er Erdener Treppchen Riesling Auslese GK was made with fruit barely affected by botrytis (10%) harvested at 104° Oechsle and was fermented down to noble-sweet levels of residual sugar (104g/l). It offers a beautiful nose made of grapefruit, dried fruits, smoke, almond cream, baked pineapple, and residual scents from its spontaneous fermentation. The wine delivers highly zesty flavors on the palate with almost Eiswein bite at this stage, which includes refreshing flavors of grapefruit, lime, passion fruit, dried fruit, almond paste, and spices. The finish is juicy, focused, and hugely racy. This amazing noble-sweet wine could prove even more engaging at maturity, if it manages to integrate its primary zest into its aromatic profile.
