2021 Herman Ludes Thornicher Ritsch Kabinett Gackes Oben
Feral Factor: 1
Herman Ludes is another estate that has always cut its own path. Focussing on drier wines, elegant and light, as Mosel Fine Wines say:
"In many ways, they are all cut from a hypothetical blend of Joh. Joh. Prüm early backwardness and Falkenstein zing while embracing the delicacy and finesse from both Estates."
The 2021er Thörnicher Ritsch Riesling Kabinett “Gackes Oben” was made from fruit picked at 78° Oechsle in the upper front part of the vineyard
and was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (56 g/l). It offers an impressive even if still rather backward nose dominated by
residual scents from the spontaneous fermentation. Gradually, elements of passion fruit, pear, limoncello, and herbs join the party. The wine is
highly sprung and beautifully delineated on the palate and leaves a gorgeously mouthwatering feel of sweet-acid tension in the finish. The aftertaste
is all about passion fruit, chalk, mint, a hint of apricot, and fine spices. This superb Kabinett now only needs patience to reveal its inner beauty.
