The 2020er Trarbacher Riesling Trocken is a bone-dry wine (with less than 1 g/l of residual sugar) made from fruit picked in the Schlossberg and Taubenhaus vineyards. It offers a subtle nose made of mirabelle, smoke, slate, blueberry, residual scents from its spontaneous fermentation, and spices. It is on the fully dry palate that it reveals its charm, presence, and cut. The finish is full of citrusy fruits, a dash of tart grapefruit zest, smoke, and spices. Although impressive now, you could also leave this animating dry Riesling alone for a few years and let the beauty reveal all its colors. Prime drinking window: 2025-2035.
