There's a beautiful lightness to the wines of the Ruwer Valley. When I say this, I guess I am mostly refering to the two legendary producers in the area - Grunhaus and Karthauserhof. Whether this has to do with terrior or winemaking decision, I don't know. Regardless, it is this trademark lightness that keeps me coming back and it's no different here.

The 2016 Karthäuserhof Eitelsbacher Karthäuserhof Riesling Spätlese Nr. 24 Auction is a very fine. From magnum. Light-footed and juicy, super aromatic, leads with ripe stone fruits and pears, complemented by spicy tones of anise and licorice. If I had to nit-pick, it would be that I expected the wine to be a little saltier. Still, it's delightfully complex and scarily drinkable.
