Very dark and golden color - probably from the late harvested grapes and the tiny maceration. The aromas are powerful and delicate, offering ripe pear, lemon peel, beeswax, baked lemon, mild petrol, old eraser, dark honey, lemon wine gum, wet and smoky stones and lees. On the palate, the wine is rich and creamy (not heavy) with a sick acidity to balance the body. Ripe pomelo, nectarine, lemon peel, a mild green bitterness, lemon verbena, honey (without being sweet) and white wine gum. Very fine minerality, lots of salt and a hint of salmiak in the finish. β€’ Hand-harvested from the famous and steep Enkircher Ellergrub vineyard β€’ 100-year-old vines β€’ Very late harvested grapes β€’ Naturally fermented in 8-year-old barrique β€’ 18 hours of maceration β€’ Aged 24 months in steel tank β€’ No filtration This is the first Ellergrub β€œReserve” wine from Weiser-KΓΌnstler, and probably the last for a long time, since it was kind of a (happy) accident. In the very hot vintage of 2018, Konstantin Weiser and Alexandra KΓΌnstlerΒ were waiting and waiting for the humidity causing the botrytis - but it never came. The vines were actually ment to be used for an Ellergrub Auslese, but instead, the overripe and very sweet grapes (still in perfect condition) resulted in a dry Riesling Reserve with high alcohol for its kind. Konstantin and Alexandra started the winery in 2005, and quickly they were on the lips of the biggest international wine personalities. They farm a little morethan 4 ha of Riesling, all biodynamic and with a low amount of sulfur.
