Professional reviews:

John Gilman (View from the Cellar): “The 2015 Mosel Riesling bottling is mostly Goldtröpfchen fruit this year. The wine was raised in its customary blend of fifty percent fuder and fifty percent stainless steel and is a fine bottle in the making. The bouquet offers up a youthful blend of pink grapefruit, wild yeasts, citrus peel, a fine base of slate minerality and a touch of Goldtröpfchen currant leaf in the upper register. On the palate the wine is fullish, crisp and beautifully balanced, with fine focus and grip, a lovely core and a very long, vibrant and beautifully transparent finish that shows excellent mineral drive and precision. Fine juice. 2016-2035+. 91/100 pts”

Vinous: “This wine is prominently labeled “Mosel” or “Moselle” depending on the market, and is sourced from younger vines in the Goldtröpfchen plus a tiny parcel in the Falkenberg. This year’s cuvée boasts audaciously high acidity for an “intro-level” bottling, but that acidity is ideally sublimated and harnessed to the tasks of invigoration and refreshment. Lime, pink grapefruit and mango offer Goldtröpfchen-typically colorful and forward fruitiness. Sappy intensity, palpably high extract and faint oiliness of texture are allied with alcoholic levity (even at 11.5 percent) and generous juiciness. Citrus zest lends invigoration, and wet stone provides a sounding board for the fruit, on a persistent finish.” 90/100 pts

Mosel Fine Wines (David Rayer and Jean Fisch): “The 2015er Mosel Riesling comes mainly from the Goldtröpfchen with, in addition, the fruit from some young vines of the Schubertslay and Ohligsberg. Its bouquet is initially on the fresh and cool side before riper notes of mirabelle, greengage and pineapple come through. The wine proves superbly clean, zesty and dynamic on the palate and in the finish. It only needs a few years to fully blossom.”
