Product description

Tasting Note

The Herzog Rieslaner Trockenbeerenauslese (“selected grapes”) from 2008 is of a light-amber colour, with tones of dried fruits such as raisins and aromatic touches of brittle and forest honey. Besides its exotic sweetness and fruitiness, the Riesling has even more to offer: thanks to a certain acidity, this wine leaves a long and juicy aftertaste that whets the appetite for the next sip.


2018: James Suckling: 98/100 Points "Golden in color, this offers very, very vibrant orange marmalade and apricot conserve, as well as dried mango. Staggering acidity here. The fruit is so pure with peach and mango conserve in super sweet mode and bracing acidity. So intense that it is confrontational now and needs a lot of time to settle. This is one of the wines you can most easily age in the cellar. Dried apricot finish, seared by 18 grams per liter of acidity. From organically grown grapes. Drink now, but better after." (Top 100 Wines of Germany 2019) | RESTAURANT WINE® Issues #190-193: 5/5 stars "Terrific! The 2018 Rieslaner TBA is an extraordinary wine: ultra-rich and light bodied, it is luscious and yet very crisp and long on the palate, with a kaleidoscope of flavors (peach, orange marmelade, rose petal, honey, candied lemon, sage), and a very persistent finish. The best-ever Rieslaner we have tasted. Can be aged for decades. Organic. [2035-2065]"
