Lush and highly delicate on the palate, this is a filigreed, very elegant, piquant and finessed Auslese with fine botrytis concentration and a long, salty finish. Great balance and finesse here. Tasted in April 2019.- SR collapse

Remarkably pure, lemon-meringue character and Chinese plums lead on the nose with fresh sea breeze arising in their wake.

Despite the intense sweetness, its the acidity that really sticks out — it feels almost like it’s literally biting your palate, such is the force and greatness of this wine. Drink now or hold. collapse

Ripe apple, pear and mango are garlanded in honeysuckle and mingled with site-typical smokiness and crushed stone on a haunting nose and a lush, satiny palate.

Supportive sweetness and a suggestion of quince preserves reinforce the impression of enormous richness. Yet there is an unmistakable sense of alcoholic levity, and the finish introduces welcome grapefruit and orange juiciness while proving remarkably transparent to stony, alkaline, smoky and mouthwateringly saline nuances. (This is the sole bottling from Zeltinger Schlossberg in Molitor’s vintage 2017 collection. That fact reflects his having swapped numerous small parcels in this Einzellage for a single new 10-acre, high-elevation piece whose vines he immediately grubbed up. That said, there will be a trio of low-volume "three-star" Schlossberg Auslesen from 2018.) -- David Schildknecht collapse
