The 2010 vintage in Mosel is quite extreme with very high acidity. The result is some unique wines especially in the sweet categories. The high acidity is however a challenge in the Kabinett and Spätlese categories. The Schloss Lieser Juffer Kabinett 2010 is a quite extreme wine with high acidity – maybe also to high! The bouquet is fresh, with a lot of minerality and some notes of tropical fruits. On the palate quite dense, with a depth oand power of a big Spätlese or a light Auslese. Good body and fruit with a fine minerality. The acidity is powerfull but well integrated in the mid palate, but sadly the finish is dominated by a acidity afterburner – not really enjoyable at this point. I really like Schloss Lieser, and normally also high acidity, but this wine needs many years in the cellar to integrate and soften the acidity – and will the fruit and sweetness survive to balance the wine.
(Drink from 2020) Good – 85p
