Erdener Treppchen Riesling Auslese

Every sip will create a craving for more. Unbeatable price/pleasure ratio!

Another Schmitges masterpiece year on year. Perfect balance of fine acidity and noble sweetness, extremely dense and long, very clear and harmonious but with a pronounced mineral finish.

More about this wine

Food matches
A sweet wine for dining, not dessert - amazing with Asian flavours, with pork dishes (ham on the bone) and one of the most impressive blue cheese matches I have found.

2005: ** sweetness, 50cl Size.
A pale golden green/yellow, with a nose of lime, minerals and with a hint of peach. On the palate, peaches and lime. rich with good acidity and an initial brief burst of sweetness which recedes to show the fruit. There's a good acid structure and a nice "bite" on the long, rich finish, along with a little spice. This is really a food wine and is still very young - it will benefit substantially from further bottle ageing.

2007: * sweetness, 50cl Size. Parker 91 points.
Wonderful mineral fruit, fascinating flavours of sappy peach, nectarines, ripe apple paired with mineral complexity. On the palate, delicate, elegant with notable acidity and wonderfully balanced by fine sweetness. Every sip will create a craving for more. Unbeatable price/pleasure ratio! Storage potential until at least 2020.

2009: ** sweetness, 37.5cl Size.
Deep, mineral, extremely pronounced aromas, crystal clear with a delicate sweetness of peach, lime, pineapple, grapefruit and apricot paired with robust, profound slate flavours. On the palate, very sappy, ripe fruit with an intense mineral zest. The fine acidity and noble sweetness result in perfect balance, extremely dense and long, very clear and harmonious but pronounced mineral finish. To enjoy now until at least 2025. Ben says (February 2017): I concur!
