2022 Max Kilburg Ohligsberg Riesling Trocken

2022 Max Kilburg Ohligsberg Riesling 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 Ohligsberg Riesling Trocken, as it is referred to on the consumer label, was made from up to 40-year-old vines harvested at 87°

Oechsle. The grapes were pressed with an old basket press and the wine was fermented and matured for 12 months in stainless-steel tank down to

bone-dry Riesling (below 3 g/l of residual sugar). Initially still marked by residues from its spontaneous fermentation, it slowly reveals a superbly

complex, finely fruity, and layered nose of yellow flowers, vineyard peach, orange blossom, jasmine, violet, Conference pear, and almond cream.

The wine proves superbly balanced on the palate, where a hint of fruity elements is wrapped in cream and candied zesty elements. The bone-dry

finish proves superbly well delineated and spicy and has great length and precision as well as some tartness in need of integration. This is a great

dry Riesling. 2028-2042
