1984 Peter Lauer - Riesling Sekt Réserve @lauerwine ℹ️ This wine is 💯 Riesling from the Saar sub-region of the Mosel, Germany. The fruit comes from the Ayler Kupp Vineyard (80%) and the Ayler Scheidterberg Vineyard (20%). Sekt is a sparkling wine using the traditional method or tank method. This bottle is labeled "flaschengärung handgerüttelt" which means it is bottle fermented (traditional method) and hand riddled. The Réserve bottlings are late disgorged bottles with at least 20 years of lees aging before release. This bottle was disgorged in November 2017. This wine has a low dosage of 4 g/l using sweet Riesling instead of sugar. 👁 Deep gold color slight amber hue. 👃 Medium+ intensity on the nose. Aromas of apple cider, dried apple, dried apricot, cigar tobacco, hay, wilting flowers, and anise. 👄 The wine is dry, high lively acidity, low alcohol (9.5%), and medium- body. The bubbles are almost non-existent except on the tip of the tongue. Due to the prolonged lees aging, there is a slight caramel or coffee note on the palate. A medium length finish of dried orchard fruit, hay, and anise. 🔔 Wine Geek Warning ⚠️ This wine is the oldest Sekt that I have ever tried, and I don't exactly know what to think of it. The flavor profile is unique, with dried cigar, hay, and anise flavors showing up on a Riesling. It has a fair amount of complexity to it but feels like it has a bit more than one foot in the grave. I would need to explore more bottles to form a clear opinion, but this nothing like old Champagne nor young Sekt wines. If you have tried one of these, I would love to hear your thoughts. It sparked some curiosity. 🧠💭 💰~$75 #vin #lovewine #🍷 #wineterroir #wine #weingut #peterlauer #sekt #riesling #mosel #moselwein #saar #sparklingwine #rieslinglover #rieslingwine #🍾
