Weingut Max Ferd. Richter Elisenberger Riesling Kabinett 2019 / 750 ml.

Item#: 90999

WS9393 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 02/21
Elisenberg sits on the south side of the Mosel, set well back from the river, behind the town of Mülheim. The cooler climate and combination of slate and quartz in the soils gives the wine a unique character — in the case of this 2019, one that’s herbal and sagey, with layers of lemony flavor — zest, pith, pulp and lemon verbena. The bright acidity gives it a vivacity that’s mouthwatering, ready to slice through a savory bread pudding.

The 2019 Elisenberger Riesling Kabinett is very clear, fresh and coolish on the still reductive yet pure and stony nose. Lush and piquant on the palate this is a concentrated, lean and laser-sharp Riesling with juicy fruit and concise acidity. The finish goes straight, which makes this a Riesling for Japanese knife fans. Tasted at the domain in September 2020.

Where It's From

Region / Mosel

View more wines from Mosel

Mosel is home to some of Germany's finest white wines, a majority of which are Rieslings. The region surrounds the Mosel, Saar, and Ruwer rivers, and the soils in the region (full of Devonian Slate) make it perfect for growing Riesling grapes. The resulting wines are known for their aromatic floral bouquets and pronounced minerality.

Country / Germany

View more wines from Germany

The German wine-making tradition is long and illustrious, dating back to as early as AD 800. And for a country just slightly smaller than Montana, Germany produces and consumes a great deal of wine (it's the seventh-largest producer and sixth-highest consumer).

Germany is situated at the most northerly latitude at which grapes can ripen; the winters are cold and the growing season short, all of which, incidentally, are nearly identical to the Finger Lakes Region of New York. Most of its wine regions are situated in central and southwestern Germany. The most significant are the Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Rheinpfalz, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Nahe, Franken and Baden.

The Riesling grape is king in Germany, even though it represents only 20% of total plantings: Müller-Thurgau (a Riesling-silvaner cross) has the most, followed by the red grapes Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and Dornfelder. In good years and in the care of master winemakers, Riesling makes one of the greatest white wines in the world, with a perfect balance of sugar and acid, exquisite fruit and fragrance and with considerable potential for aging.

A mélange of tropical fruits — passion fruit, tangerine, mango — highlight this delicate, intense Riesling. It has a vibrant structure and fine concentration, all wonderfully balanced and expressive. Terrific finish too. Drink now through 2015. 25 cases made.

From old vines in the valley floor and also from the Erdener Herrenberg, the 2022 Richter Estate Riesling is a feinherb Gutswein that offers a bright, floral and beautifully slatey bouquet. Lush and round on the palate, this is a crystalline, saline and savory, fruity Mosel classic bottled with a bit more than 18 grams per liter of residual sugar, which comes across as ripe and juicy fruit. The acidity is wonderfully sharp and precise but nevertheless ripe. 10%% stated alcohol. Screw-cap closure. Tasted in May 2023. (Stephan Reinhardt)

Smoky, dusty aromas of white pepper and caramelized minerals can be detected in the nose of the 2003 Riesling Eiswein Mulheimer Helenenkloster. A dense, syrupy offering, it offers jammy red fruit flavors that are intermingled with molasses and butterscotch. Thick, deep, and powerful, this is an expressive wine that is armed with an extremely long, sweet finish. While it will undoubtedly last for decades, I recommend drinking it before it becomes completely dominated by burnt sugar flavors. Anticipated maturity: now–2012.

From vines about 50 years old, the 2022 Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese opens with a pure, crystalline and beautifully aromatic bouquet of ripe and lush, pretty tropical fruit aromas intertwined with lemon zests and broken slate. Round and saline on the palate, with ripe and playful, very elegant acidity, this is a mouth-filling, crystalline and saline Spätlese with very delicate phenolic grip and excellent aging potential. 7.5% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine in May 2023. (Stephan Reinhardt)

Plenty of exotic-fruit character from botrytis, but they haven’t made this refined Auslese loud, only more complex and tantalizing. Considerable concentration, but everything fits together so neatly that it comes off as restrained. Very complex, almost dry finish with a hint of vanilla pod. Delicious now, but so much aging potential. Drink or hold.
RP95+95+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2020
From the overripe and botrytized berries of the Spätlese selection, the 2019 Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese is intense and concentrated on the nose, but due to the sulfuric notes, it is far from being as terroir-driven as the Spätlese or even the Kabinett. The fruit is concentrated yet piquant, fresh and elegant on the palate and pure, refined and subtle on the finish due to the crystalline acidity and finesse that represents the JSU. This is an excellent Spätlese that needs at least a decade to age to its full finesse. Tasted at the domain in September 2020.

The 2019 Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese is fascinatingly pure, bright, refined and flinty on the nose that reveals very fine Riesling, slate and iron aromas. Pure, fresh and filigreed on the palate, this is a crystalline, fresh and piquant, crisp and crystalline JSU Spätlese in the acidity-accentuated MFR style. The finish is pure and salty, piquant and concise and makes this an exciting wine to try again in 20 years. Tasted at the domain in September 2020. (Stephan Reinhardt)
JS9595 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, April 12, 2021
I love the beautifully ripe but delicate yellow-fruit aromas of this Spätlese, ranging from mirabelle to peach and just a hint of honeysuckle. A noble wine that remains restrained and slowly reveals its treasures to the patient. Discreet grape sweetness adds a touch of creaminess to the mid-palate, but the very mineral finish is totally clean. Drink or hold.

The 2019 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese *** (Golden Capsule) opens with an immediately attractive bouquet, with perfectly ripe peach aromas intermingled with very fine crunchy and flinty slate notes. Lush and intense yet weightless, with an enormously salty, finessed and elegant but also generously fruity palate lifted by crystalline and mouth-salivating acidity, this is a filigreed, transparent and immaculate Auslese of mind-blowing finesse and elegance and the sexiest expression of complexity. Tasted in May 2021. (Stephan Reinhardt)

The 2019 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett is bright, precise and elegant on the complex, refined, beautifully clear and flinty nose. Lush, refined and salty-piquant on the palate, this is a salty, crunchy and stimulating Kabinett with a long and intense finish. Bottled with 9.5% alcohol and 60 grams of residual sugar. Tasted at the domain in September 2020. (Stephan Reinhardt)
JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, April 12, 2021
So juicy, yet so fine, this is a “light” wine with very good ripeness, but more importantly a lot of finesse, the long finish brilliant and filigree. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Sep 2, 2021
Rich, stitched with flavors of peach, spiced apple and slate. Ends on a tangy note, with a chalky sensation while accents of brown spices echo on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 350 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

Bottled in early September, the 2019 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese feinherb “Ur-alte Reben” is very fine and subtle on the deep, intense and aromatic but pure, fresh and flinty-elegant nose with a touch of oak. Silky, refined and fresh on the palate, this is a very complex and crystalline Riesling with enormous length and complexity. A gorgeous wine that needs years to show its talents. Tasted at the domain in September 2020. (Stephan Reinhardt)
