Hermann Ludes, Thörnich

- Über die Jahre hinweg ein durchgängiger Stil, ohne Bruch.
- "Weine, wie man sie immer seltener an der Mosel findet" - Vinum 2020
The 2021er Thörnicher Ritsch Riesling Kabinett “Gackes Oben” was made from fruit picked at 78° Oechsle in the upper front part of the vineyard
and was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (56 g/l). It offers an impressive even if still rather backward nose dominated by
residual scents from the spontaneous fermentation. Gradually, elements of passion fruit, pear, limoncello, and herbs join the party. The wine is
highly sprung and beautifully delineated on the palate and leaves a gorgeously mouthwatering feel of sweet-acid tension in the finish. The aftertaste
is all about passion fruit, chalk, mint, a hint of apricot, and fine spices. This superb Kabinett now only needs patience to reveal its inner beauty.
