Furst Centgrafenberg Riesling Grosses Gewachs 2020
A benchmark Riesling from Sebastian, and shows why his whites should be mentioned in the same breath as his world-class reds.
Produced by Fürst
A family winery with roots dating back to 1638. Paul Fürst, along with his wife Monika, took the reins in 1979, relocating the winery to the outskirts of the village, where it's cozily nestled within the Centgrafenberg vineyard. Starting with a modest 1.5-hectare vineyard, the Fürsts' meticulous expansion efforts have now blossomed into a sprawling 21-hectare estate, predominantly dedicated to Spätburgunder (German for Pinot Noir). They emphasize meticulous vineyard care, selective hand harvesting, and eco-friendly practices, resulting in wines that have earned accolades from near and far.
Dry and mineral, with salinity that shines through on the palate, a layered character that keeps you reaching for more. Long and floral finish. Complex, and impressive.
