As one of the oldest and highest quality of the Mosel vineyards, the Thörnicher Ritsch has almost been forgotten. But the Ritsch has extraordinarily high potential. The fine-tart Riesling from the "Gackes unten" vineyard parcel vividly demonstrates the strengths of this imposing vineyard site. The rootless vines transport the sparse blue slate directly into the glass. The nose shows a lot of smoke and the smell of hot slate. Besides a sensual white fruit, one smells the refreshing scent of freshly grated mint leaves. This distinctive freshness gives the Riesling its noble cool note. Pure minerality on the palate! Finely ground sea salt and a slightly tart note provide plenty of grip and animation. The juicy acidity continues into the endless finish and is accompanied by a discreet lemony aftertaste. Very sexy!
