Notes from the Winemaker:
A stunning late-picked Riesling that combines ripe, concentrated fruit with an electrifying, slate-driven mineral structure.
Fruit driven finesse is marked with a delicate floral character in this late-picked Riesling. Notes of vineyard peach, grapefruit, juicy lemon and ripe passion fruit come together on a creamy, concentrated palate rich with melon and candied lemon peel. Stunning exchange of racy acidity and layered sweetness together form a perfectly poised whole. The long, juicy finish and fantastic vintage hint at a beautiful future yet to come.

Alcohol: 8.0% | Residual Sweetness: 86.4 grams/liter | Total Acidity: 6.9 grams/liter | Total Production: 975 cases

Ratings & Reviews

96 Points - James Suckling:
"You would be well advised to cancel anything else you were planning to do today, because this is brimming with pineapple and papaya aromas that will suck you into the concentrated and graceful palate. I love the dangerously refreshing finish that's also very silky. Drink or hold." - (13 Aug, 2020 )

94+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2019 Rausch Spatlese is clear, precise, fresh and flinty on the nose. Obviously based on perfectly botrytized grapes, this is a dense, concentrated, rich and generous but fine and elegant Spatlese from the Saarburger Rausch. The finish is piquant and salty, still young but already stimulating. 8% alcohol. Tasted from AP 04-20 in April 2020." - Stephan Reinhardt (13th Aug 2020)
