This month, we highlight an impressive Auslese by Markus Molitor with great inner balance, complexity and finesse.
Even in the cooler 2008 vintage, Weingut Markus Molitor produced a full range of wines, including some high-octane BA, TBA and Eiswein bottlings (to be released only in a few years).
The Estate produced many outstanding wines (see our Issue No 9). In particular, an impressive Auslese ** from the Zeltinger Schlossberg caught our attention through its inner balance, complexity and finesse.
Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Auslese ** (Golden Capsule)
Although still quite closed and reduced, this hints at some gorgeous notes of peaches, apples and pears with a touch of honey in the background for good measure. The wine is powerful yet playful on the palate with a great sense of cool mineral freshness. The finish is zesty and multi-layered with a seemingly endless finish. This is a great success for the vintage. 2016-2033+
