Koehler-Ruprecht Riesling Pfalz Kallstadter Saumagen Kabinett Trocken 2020
91 POINTS: Stuart Pigott, James Suckling.com
Sourced entirely from the Saumagen Grand Cru site in the Pfalz (Koehler Ruprecht opted out of the VDP therefore even his Auslese trockens don't use the term GG even though technically they could be classified that way), left on skins for 12-24 hours before pressing and aged for up to 9 months in big old traditional barrels. All this lends the wine a patinated and textural feel. Densely packed with flavours of citrus and stonefruit, this is delightfully succulent, and very friendly bottle of wine. It’s got honeyed richness, but finishes dry. It comes from the village of Kallstadt in Pfalz, and it will put a smile on your face.
“The effusive nose of white peach and honeysuckle leads you into this elegant, mid-weight dry Riesling that marries very attractive juiciness to pronounced, chalky character and a positive touch of tannin at the crisp finish. Drink or hold.”
