"From 100-year-old vines in the Goldwingert and super ripe and overripe grapes, the 2022 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese is very precise and clear as a mountain stream on the fresh and still reductive nose. Lush and fresh on the palate, with an elegant and savory texture, this is a precise, sharp and well concentrated, finely sweet and saline Auslese that will be very digestible after a decade or more of bottle aging. 7% ... read more

"From 100-year-old vines in the Goldwingert and super ripe and overripe grapes, the 2022 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese is very precise and clear as a mountain stream on the fresh and still reductive nose. Lush and fresh on the palate, with an elegant and savory texture, this is a precise, sharp and well concentrated, finely sweet and saline Auslese that will be very digestible after a decade or more of bottle aging. 7% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine in May 2023."

"Ripe grapefruit and white currant, creamy and clean fruit structure, racy fruit acid, very elegant and long lasting finish." ~ Tasting Notes
About Max Richter
The estate of Max Ferdinand Richter has been owned by the Richter family for more than 300 years. Today this enterprise, owned and run by winemaker Dirk Richter, is one of the leading producers of top Rieslings in the heart of the central Mosel area with total holdings of 43 acres and an annual production of about 10,500 cases. Richter not only produces fine wines that are well known throughout the world, such as Erdener Treppchen, Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, and Brauneberger Juffer, but also two coveted top wines: Mülheimer Helenenkloster and Veldenzer Elisenberg. The possession of these vineyards dates back to 1813 when their ancestor, in an extreme demonstration of personal courage, succeeded in preventing the sacking of Mülheim by Napoleon. They produce a wide variety of wines from estate-grown grapes that reflect the individual style of each single vineyard. The terroir of their steep vineyard sites is generally fresh weathering grey slate with different compositions of ferruginous (Brauneberg), mineral quartz (Veldenz), or clay soils (Graach, Erden, Wehlen, Mülheim), which determine character and flavour. The wines of Max Ferdinand Richter enjoy worldwide acclaim. They are ambassadors of the rich cultural heritage of the unique Mosel landscape.
