From ancient partly ungrafted vines the 2020 Enkircher Ellergrub Riesling is white-golden in color and opens with a clear fine and very complex as well as delicate bouquet of ripe fruit and finely weathered blue slate notes. This is amazingly fine again but also generously ripe yet everything seems to be so easily interwoven. Bottled three weeks ago this is a full-bodied round and elegant Riesling that again didn't ferment to fully dry which gives slightly sweet (or round) fruit but also lush mouth-filling and silky-textured fruit with remarkable finesse. The finish is long and harmonious very elegant and sublime. Many Riesling lovers will adore this wine immediately (and with the right dish such as poultry in cream sauce with morels or porcini with good reason) yet I'd opt to cellar it for about a decade. In any case you can expect to enjoy a great Mosel Riesling when it's Immich's 2020 Ellergrub. 12% stated alcohol 16 grams of residual sugar per liter. Natural cork. Tasted on November 1 2021.
