TN: 2001 Karthäuserhof Eitelsbacher Karthäuserhofberg Riesling Spätlese Auction

  • 2001 Karthäuserhof Eitelsbacher Karthäuserhofberg Riesling Spätlese Auction - Germany, Mosel Saar Ruwer (11/19/2020)
    This is really delicious. Deep and rich while bright and elegant. A bit of spritz hits the tongue and there’s a little element of passito like it’s a baby (and slightly - only slightly - less intense) TBA. Perfect balance and, to use a technical term, yummy. Bought on release and properly cellared.

Nice. I've consistently enjoyed this producer's wines. And, for the very little it's worth, I like their understated labelling.

I liked when they kept their various vineyards separate, although I do understand why they blend them.
Have a few bottles left of the nonauction 1990.

I have never had anything from this producer. I will have to give it a try sometime. If Maureen says it's delicious I have to give it a try. Thanks for the excellent notes Maureen! [cheers.gif]

I drank all my 2001 Spatlese a long time ago. I remember this one to be a nice QPR. I either drink too young or too late! Thanks for the TN Maureen!

Not in sweetness. Texture and a dried berry element.

See Maureen. Adding yet more competition. I hope you nailed down a supply before posting.

This wine? Only two more bottles. 2001 spatlese? Only a little more than 5 cases left. 2001 German riesling? Only about 11 cases left.

I don’t have the German wine collection David has. And apparently I cannot write a TN to please him. Sorry.

Not at all. I am just trying to wrap my head around what this wine must be like. Remember that I am not a collector/drinker of Karthauserhof to any degree.
