2015 Saarburger Rausch Auslese Geltz/Zilliken

Robert Parker has described Forstmeister Geltz-Zilliken’s wines as “spectacularly long-aging Riesling” with “lip-smacking balance”. And the 2015 vintage comes highly-rated by both Jancis Robinson and Mosel Fine Wines, an independent review of Mosel Riesling. The latter have said that “the 2015 vintage will go down as one of the great vintages at the Estate” and that the production “nicely underlines why Spätlese and Auslese are the sweet spot of the 2015 vintage in the Mosel.”


Jancis Robinson awarded the “super-pure” 2015 Geltz-Zilliken Saarburger Rausch Auslese a resounding 18 points and asked “Who could dislike this?” Mosel Fine Wines gave it 94 points noting: “What a little beauty in the making!”

Broad and flowery and feather light but super-pure. Racy and minty. Who could dislike this? Apr 2016, www.jancisrobinson.com, Drink: 2025-2045



This offers a very zesty and refreshing nose of white and yellow peach, pineapple and passion fruit. A delicate creamy side comes through on the palate which brings elegance and freshness to the aromatics. The finish is just plain elegance and finesse in a bottle, with flowers, a hint of honey and more exotic fruits. What a little beauty in the making!
