The 2020er Enkircher Ellergrub Riesling Auslese is made from botrytized fruit picked at 106° Oechsle and was fermented down to noble-sweet levels of residual sugar. It offers a still rather reduced and firmly spicy nose made of almond paste, dried fruits, citrusy fruits, melon, smoke, and whipped cream. The wine develops the full rich and focused presence of an Auslese GK on the sweet yet racy palate and leaves one with great flavors of almond, pear, melon, and raisin in the finish. A dash of apricot and kick of zesty fruits rounds of the experience in the aftertaste. This superb dessert wine is still on the shy side and could ultimately prove even better as we anticipated, especially as it reveals its flavors.
