The 2015 Spätlese is outstanding, as it has great acidity and mineral drive to gobble up the eighty gramps per liter of residual sugar in this bottling.

Professional reviews:

John Gilman (View from the Cellar): “The Spätlese selection in the Felseneck comes from the very summit of the vineyard, with a due south exposition. The 2015 Spätlese is outstanding, as it has great acidity and mineral drive to gobble up the eighty grams per liter of residual sugar in this bottling. The nose jumps from the glass in a lovely blend of white cherry, pear, bee pollen, a fine base of slate, wild yeasts and dried flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is medium-full, pure and again, marvelously filigreed, with fine complexity and bounce, excellent focus and a long, zesty and elegant finish. Lovely juice. 2019-2050.” 93/100 pts

Wine Advocate: “The 2015 Felseneck Riesling Spatlese was picked at least 2.5 weeks later than the Kabinett and has almost double the amount of residual sugar but a gram less of acidity. It opens with a flinty, pure and herbal bouquet of crushed stones. Rich and ripe but piquant and racy on the palate, this is a very pure, precise and intense if not gorgeous Spatlese with great finesse and tension.” 93+/100 pts

Wine Spectator: “Vibrantly fresh and racy, with good cut to green apple, pear and white cherry flavors, accented by zesty spice notes. Mineral and sage details linger on the fresh, crunchy finish. Pure and refreshing. Drink now through 2035. 250 cases made.” 93/100 pts
