Karthäuserhof Alte Reben Spätlese Trocken 2015

“Since 1335 AD.” Captivating and perfectly balanced, this wine is an ethereal yellow-gold in the glass, and a deluge of complex and supple textures on the senses. Incredibly fresh with a rich bouquet of floral notes, kiwi and grapefruit dance on waves of palate-coating, clinging minerality. Served best in white stems at 8˚ you will appreciate the crystalline purity of this wine as you reflect on the generations of viticulture behind every sip.

Continuously owned by the Leonardy-Rautenstrauch-Tyrell-Behler family since Napoleon’s restructuring of French property in 1811, the “new” owners of the vineyard have been perfecting dry Rieslings on this land for over eight generations now. Currently operated by Sascha Dannhäuser as head winemaker, the 2015 vintage marked the return of legendary winemaker Ludwig Breiling to help oversee operations after an absence from 2009, forming a veritable dream team for the estate. Now is the time to accumulate these iconic and ageless wines.
