2017 Zilliken Saarburg Rausch Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel #02

110.00

Wine Advocate: 97/100
Mosel Fine Wines: 95/100

On the palate, this is a pure yet concentrated, very elegant, piquant and finessed Auslese with super attractive pineapple flavors in the long, aromatic and beautifully straight finish. Great structure and impressive freshness (11 or 12 grams per liter of total acidity), this is a great, alive-and-kicking Riesling.”

Wine Advocate: “Picked at roughly 130° Oechsle, the 2017 Saarburg Rausch Riesling Auslese (Gold Capsule), AP #2, is very clear, fresh and intense in its tropical fruit and lovely slate aromas. There are concentrated grapefruit flavors here as well. On the palate, this is a pure yet concentrated, very elegant, piquant and finessed Auslese with super attractive pineapple flavors in the long, aromatic and beautifully straight finish. Great structure and impressive freshness (11 or 12 grams per liter of total acidity), this is a great, alive-and-kicking Riesling. Bottled and tasted in March 2018. Drink: 2020-2060” 97/100 pts

Mosel Fine Wines (Jean Fisch & David Rayer): “The 2017er Saarburger Rausch Auslese GK was the result of a week’s worth of botrytis selections harvested at a whopping 130° Oechsle. The wine develops a great ethereal nose driven by mirabelle, pear, apricot, almonds, quince, tropical fruits and dried fruits as well as bergamot. It proves nicely oily and refined on the palate and leaves a delicately honeyed feel in the long and beautifully balanced finish. 2027-2047” 95/100 pts
