Max Ferd. Richter, Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett Mosel 2002

Max Ferd. Richter Kabinett Weh Sonn 2002

Green-gold.  Firm nose with nice clarity: apple pulp, citrus pith, almond oil, sage, petrol and wet stone minerality.  Medium body with a bit of a sappy, oiled texture.  Quite restained thru the midpalate and finish; brothy, like a consommé of blue slate.  Grippy, pure and harmonious.  Ungrafted vines and old-fashioned Mosel winemaking here.  Slightly oxidative in style, aged in cask.   Interesting wine.  Its both typical and atypical of Middle Mosel kabinett.  A good result regardless.  And still miles to go before it sleeps.  Now – 2018+.
