Mosel Fine Wines 90
The 2021er Ayler Riesling “Senior” N°6 is a off-dry wine (with 14 g/l of residual sugar) made from fruit harvested from the original Kupp hill on a west-facing section towards Wawern. It offers a rather undercooled nose made of gooseberry, whipped cream, grapefruit zest, floral elements, and lots of backward feeling smoke and slate. The wine is impeccably balanced on the palate. Here, orchard fruits interplay with fine spices and herbal elements. A great sense of zest provides the right counterpart to balance out the slight creaminess in the finish. The aftertaste is all about black berried fruits, mirabelle, and smoke.
