Niepoort, Kettern Piesporter Goldtropfchen Kabinett 750ml 2012Germany, Mosel
Harvested very early at the beginning of October with 92° Oechsle and 12 grams per liter of acidity and fermented and aged in a fuder cask for almost two years without the addition of sulfur (just 50 grams were added in autumn 2014), the wine was bottled unfiltered in September 2014.
In the glass the ‘golden droplets’ offers intense, golden yellow fruits and a subtle bouquet of mineral-citrus notes. Over time, more yellow fruits unfold; peaches, apricots and ripe apples. Rocky and almost salty, the minerality of the wine progresses side by side with the fruit. The sweetness is juxtaposed with a vibrant and dynamic fruit acid, which provides freshness and temperament. There is a mushroom edge, showing a hint of maturity. Superb value!
Sweet – 55g/l and 8,5% Alcohol
Ageing in old 1000l wooden foudres.
