2021 Herman Ludes Thornicher Ritsch Kabinett Monster
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 “Monster” was made from fruit picked at 78° Oechsle in the prime south-facing western part of the
vineyard and was fermented down to barely fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (37 g/l). It offers a stunning nose of white peach, green apple, bitter
lemon, flowers, a dash of whipped cream, and fine spices. Lemony and mint drive the flavors on the subtly creamy and yet hugely vibrating palate.
The finish is lifted up by a delicate touch of whipped cream. This is a stunning Kabinett in the making which more than reminds of some of the finest
examples by Hofgut Falkenstein. 2027-2041
