Tuesday Quick Sip – 1981 Max Ferd Richter Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett

1981 Max Ferd Richter Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett

Wine Information –

Region: Mosel, Germany

Vineyard: Erdener Treppchen

Grape: Riesling

Quality: QmP – Kabinett

Price: $20

My Tasting Notes -

Nose: honey, floral, petrol/rubber

Taste: apricot, petrol, slate, mineral

Mouthfeel: medium to light body, felt a bit thin

Finish: medium in length – honey flavors lingering

The flavors and aromas were nice, classic for a well aged Riesling. The body was lacking in depth, although it still had nice acidity, the mouthfeel was just a bit light.

Cheers!

  1. I tasted this wine a couple of months ago and have a bottle in my fridge. Just the fact that it’s white from 1981 and enjoyable to drink makes this quite a gem.

  2. I met this guy in the Mosel earlier this year. I thought he was kind of nuts :-). But the wines were classic Mosel.

    Cheers!
