The 2019er Wolfer Goldgrube Riesling Spätlese was made from fruit partially affected by botrytis (20%) picked at 96° Oechsle, and was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar (92 g/l). It offers a rather backward nose made of pear, mirabelle, whipped cream, a hint of fresh pineapple, and plenty of smoke and wet stone. The wine is gorgeously and finely sizzled on the palate, where subtle flavors of lemon, apricot blossom, white pepper, and herbs woe for one’s attention. The finish is all about subtle creamy and zesty finesse, and this despite the comparatively high sugar levels of the must. This gorgeous “feine Auslese” expression of Riesling is simply to die for. We would not be surprised if it would eventually warrant an even higher rating, such is its potential. What a wine! 2029-2049

The 2019 Wolfer Goldgrube Riesling Spätlese is discreet and elegant yet concentrated on the sublime and flinty nose with its precise and perfectly healthy fruity aromas. Sweet and piquant on the palate, this is a mouth-filling yet playful and frisky Spätlese. It is slightly too sweet for my personal taste, but it is stimulatingly piquant on the finish. Keep the 2019 for a decade and it will be delicious. Tasted from AP 02 20 in May 2020.
