Karthäuserhof Eitelsbacher Karthäuserhofberg Riesling 2018
Unfortunately, many years after the former manager left, the Karthäuser Hofberg had disappeared somewhat. In 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 you overslept a bit, there were many changes in personnel, but now at least the management is stable and now we are back where we want to be in the cellar master's area. Now the Karthäuserhof is again in the very first row, in the meantime you were heavily dependent on Maximin Grünhaus GG. 2018 shows this beautiful, clean ripeness, without any botrytis or rotting, also no drought stress. Ripe European fruit, apple, pear, lemon grass and green tea, very harmonious, a lot of pressure in the mouth with fine bitter substances. It really gets down to business, all senses are touched. The wine has power and still this harmony, this wonderful, aromatic fruit. The ripe eyeball meets lemongrass, lime, light tannins from the maceration time, that gives structure. In 2018 the Karthäuserhofberg is back to the size it was before. That fills me with joy, I will go back here again.
