Exotic and intense, with all the terroir-driven complexity you could ask for, from the lily scented bouquet to the persistent, bone-dry finish. This wine shines every year, but the 2019 is already proving to be outstanding with its smoky white fruit and complex herbal finish laced with refreshing minerality.
Drop everything now, because this is oh so serious, but oh so exciting. At once warm and cool, mouthwatering and ripe with a very long, complex herb and mineral finale. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
From weathered red sandstone in a warm, southwest-facing vineyard, the 2019 Riesling Karthäuser is beautifully clear, ripe, intense and pure on the complex, terroir-driven nose with its smoky, white fruit aromas and notes of milled stones. Round and piquant on the palate, this is an intense, tight, complex and persistent dry Riesling. It reveals the complex and structured terroir expression that makes the Laubenheimer Karthäuser an outstanding wine almost every year.
