This 2020er Enkircher Steffensberg Im Löwenbaum Riesling Trocken is a bone-dry wine (with 3 g/l of residual sugar) made fruit harvested in the prime Löwenbaum sector of the vineyard (classified “dark red” on the old Prussian taxation map). It offers a subtly ample but still nicely precise nose made of white peach, a hint of melon, a dash of blood orange, smoke, cardamom, and whipped cream. The wine proves packed with juicy and slightly ripe flavors on the palate and leaves a feel of melon, citrusy fruits, and smoke wrapped into ripe acidity in the long finish. The aftertaste is incredibly persistent despite the wine only showing 12% of alcohol. We would not be surprised if it eventually even exceeds our high rating.
