2022 Max Kilburg Goldtropfchen Trocken









Feral Factor: 1


Max is one of the brightest new stars of the Mosel, working at his family Geierslay estate with some of the best holdings, traditional single poles, steep slopes and a producer making classic, light wines of the Mosel, with a close friendship with nearby Julian Haart.


Mosel Trocken in a lighter and fresher style than most GGs, light, balanced and so pure.


The 2022er Goldtröpfchen Riesling Trocken, as it is referred to on the consumer label, was made from up to 40-year-old vines in a parcel in the

Niederemmel part of the vineyard harvested at 90° Oechsle. The wine was fermented and matured for 12 months in a mix of 500-liter old tonneau

and stainless-steel tank down to bone-dry Riesling (below 3 g/l of residual sugar). The first nose immediately catches one’s attention as it delivers

plenty of candied yellow fruits (peach, pear, lemon, and a touch of juicy pineapple) as well as almond cream, candy floss, fine spices, cinnamon,

and a hint of smoke. As it gets more airing, it clearly moves towards a fresher style. The wine is superbly well balanced on the palate, where some

light fruity and creamy elements interplay with fresher notes of herbs and zest. The finish is full of tension and is very precise. This is a classy dry

Riesling. 2027-2037+
