Winemaker's Notes

Racy acidity harmonizes with a very ripe fruit sweetness in this brilliant, marvellous Riesling. A characterful Spatlese displaying great depth of flavor.

Critical Acclaim

"Intermingled white and black pepper can be found in the floral, minerally nose of the 2001 Riesling Spatlese Norheimer Kirshheck.

It is a silky-textured, highly concentrated, deep, and focused offering that should be at its best between 2006 and 2015. "

On the palate, this has great delicacy and fine slate minerality which, along with the red fruits, enhance the impression of a Mosel midway in character between Urzig and Bernkastel. Luscious, seamless and long in the finish, with a very primary fructose character, honey and strawberry preserve flavors, but persistent and decisive minerality as well."
