2017 Markus Molitor Zeltinger Himmelreich Riesling Auslese *** Goldkapsel Mosel

SKU #1458722 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2017 Riesling Zeltinger Himmelreich Auslese *** (Golden Capsule) offers a concentrated, super precise and refreshing bouquet of lemon chutney, candied grapefruit zests and spicy slate aromas. What piquancy and precision! It's already sharp as a laser beam on the nose. The palate is concentrated, highly refined and elegant but nervy and salty in the vibrating underground. This Auslese has a seamless texture and reveals great finesse with stimulating salinity and crystal clear, even filigreed structure. This is an amazing, Eiswein-like Auslese that will last four or more decades. It is also a historical first for Markus Molitor, who hasn't produced a three-starred Auslese in this cru before.

94 points Vinous

 White peach and pineapple on the nose take on both syrupy and fresh aspects on the glossy, silken palate. This two-track fruitiness -- similar to that exhibited by the corresponding Bernkasteler Badstube -- proves not in the least inharmonious. The vibrant, penetrating finish is remarkably focused for a wine this rich and ripe. It exhibits ideally judged sweetness; tugs at the salivary glands thanks to an unexpected influx of marine salinity; and invigorates thanks to tingle of pineapple core, piquancy of peach kernel and bite of cinnamon stick.

K&L Notes

93 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 134 18. The 2017er Zeltinger Himmelreich Auslese *** (Golden Capsule) offers a nice nose of grapefruit puree, pear, apricot, whipped cream and some herbs. The wine develops a beautifully racy feel on the delicately oily palate and leaves a superb feel of canned peach, pineapple and honeyed apricot in the vibrant finish."
