Description

This starts off with a touch of reduction underlined by yeasty notes before gradually developing beautifully elegant and floral notes paired with yellow peach, dried spices and pineapple. The wine is compact, dense and concentrated on the palate yet at no point gives the impression of being unnecessarily weighty. More yellow fruits and spices emerge in the long and complex finish. Bittersweet flavors kick then in to bring a deliciously fresh side to the after-taste. This is a superb dry Riesling! 2014-2026. 93 points, Mosel Fine Wines

A greenhouse- or florist's-like amalgam of leafing and flowering things joins with intimations of alkalinity and wet stone in the nose of Immich-Batterieberg's 2011 Enkircher Batterieberg Riesling. Its juicy lemon and lime brightness enlivens a complex matrix of white peach, apricot and crabapple suffused with fruit pit, diverse flower petals, crushed stone, mustard seed and freshly-milled grain on a subtly satiny palate. This finishes with lift and shimmeringly interactive intensity of floral, herbal, fruit and mineral components. I would expect it to perform well for at least 15 years. 92 points, David Schildknecht, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
