Zilliken Riesling Saarburger Rausch Spatlese 2016

Zilliken Riesling Saarburger Rausch Spatlese 2016

100% Riesling. Records from as early as 1742 show that the ancestors of the Zilliken family were active as wine producers in both Saarburg and Ockfen. In 1976 Hanno Zilliken and his father succeeded in restoring the original estate to its former size after it had previously been partitioned through inheritances. In 2007, his oldest daughter, Dorothee joined the estate after completing her enology studies. Their grand cru vineyards are instrumental to their success and the Saarburger Rausch vineyard exhibits an interesting, subtle, dusty gout de terroir along with citrus, lemon balm and flint.

Tasting Notes
"The 2016 Saarburger Rausch Riesling Spätlese offers a terrific bouquet of tropical fruit aromas intermixed with very fine, coolish slate and flinty aromas. Lush yet very elegant and fine on the palate, with highly delicate salinity in the finish, this is a beautiful Spätlese that reveals very fine raisin flavors and highly delicate acidity. This is a gorgeous Riesling from the Saarburger Rausch! Made with some percent of overripe berries, which gives this fabulous aroma and lush texture. Great finesse here as well." - Stephan Reinhardt
