Peter Lauer "Untersternberg" Fass 12 Riesling 2021
- In stock, ready to ship
From Mosel Fine Wines: Unterstenberg N°12, as it is referred to in the central part of the label, comes from this prime Lieu-Dit forming the south-southwest facing, front part of the original Kupp hill (at the foot of the hill), and was fermented down to dry levels of residual sugar (8 g/l). It offers a captivating and most refreshing nose of minty herbs, smoke, lime, spices (including ginger), white peach, and greengage. The wine develops more fruity elements on the palate, yet leaves a spicy and herbal feel in the superbly long, airy, and fully dry finish. The aftertaste is hugely minty, salty, and smoky, with some bitter-sweet tartness still in need of integration. This is a great dry Riesling in the making!
