2019 Trabener Schlossberg Kabinett [08 20] (WSEI09219A)
A very fresh, just off-dry wine packed with energy, cool fresh notes of alpine flowers, white peach and a glimpse of riper yellow fruit, backed by ripe and very brisk citrus acidity and a lean racy minerality deriving from the blue slate soils.
2019 Enkircher Ellergrub Kabinett [07 20] (WSEI10219A)
Harvested after the rain and showing riper yellower fruit. There is more richness and density on show here, the minerality is darker and a little creamy, but the acidity, though ripe, is cracking, and keeps the wine light and breezy all the way through to the long finish. Very lovely!
2019 Enkircher Ellergrub Spätlese [05 20] (WSEI12219A)
A little botrytis adds a melting luxurious note to the ripe yellow fruit and brisk lemon acidity, and the density is given definition by the powerful fine salty minerality that builds to a long, juicy finish.
2019 Enkircher Steffensberg 'Im Löwenbaum' Auslese [04 20] (WSEI27219A)
From a newly acquired 1/4-hectare plot down by the river. The botrytis is clearly in evidence, but it is very pure and adds no heaviness to this seductive, lemony wine which finishes on a bright, clear stony note. A beautifully elegant and charming Auslese.
2013 Enkircher Ellergrub Auslese [01 14] (WSEI30213A)
Creamy, rich sweetnees from 100% botrytis, tempered by delightfully fresh, vibrant acidity and a fine mineral presence that keeps it on the straight and narrow.
2018 Trarbacher trocken [10 19] (WSEI50218A)
2019 Trarbacher trocken [14 20] (WSEI56219A)
Lemony, herbal and intense, this is balanced, meltingly fine and poised, with ripe acidity and a stony hit on the finish. Quite lovely.
2017 Wolfer Sonnenlay Kabinett Trocken [08 18] (WSEI60217A)
Uncompromisingly dry, this playful light wine is full of vibrant citrus acidity, and salty slate flavours. It is cool and quite delicious.
2018 Steffensberg trocken [08 19] (WSEI68218A)
2019 Gaispfad [10 20] (WSEI74219A)
The Gaispfad is just over the legal limit of dryness (9g of residual sugar) weighing in with 12g, but so intense are the stony smoky slate flavours that you barely notice. It has smooth generous peach fruit, bright lemony acidity and a very long salty finish, and will keep for a good long age.
2018 Gaispfad trocken [07 19] (WSEI74218A)
There is ripe yellow fruit here, but the pronounced wet slate note keeps it lean; the vibrant lemony acidity throws all elements into pure relief and the finish is juicy, stony and long.
2017 Gaispfad Trocken [05 18] (WSEI74217A)
Never mind the winemaking style, which strives to bring out the minerality of the terroir: this has bags of peach and citrus fruit to balance the beautifully structured, elegant salty minerality, and a long juicy lemony finish.
2016 Gaispfad Trocken  (WSEI74216A)
Gaispfad – goat’s path – is an impossibly steep vineyard between Traben-Trarbach and Enkirch, featuring stony slate soil rich in iron oxide. The wine is dense, rich and mineral, with elegant stone fruit and a long, smooth finish. Drink 2019 - 2028
2018 Ellergrub 'Grosse Eule' trocken [06 19] (WSEI80218A)
On our first visit last year, the estate's signature dry wine was still fermenting, so Konstantin offered us the dregs of a bottle of 2016, open for six weeks in the fridge. We feared a tired oxidised wine, but...it was stupendous: beautifully balanced, expressive and long. We learned there that the wines are built to last, and benefit from decanting well in advance. The 2018 is no exception. It has a powerful backbone of salty wet slate, supported by brisk lemony acidity, pure ripe yellow fruit and a very long smooth finish.
2018 Ellergrub trocken 'Reserve' [15 20] (WSEI81218A)
Towards the end of the harvest, Konstantin and Alexandra decided to delay the harvest of a whole terrace of wines in the Ellergrub in the expectation of making an Auslese from botrytised grapes. But no botrytis came, so they picked the grapes and fermented them to dryness, leaving them on their lees for two years before bottling. The result is quite extraordinary: the 'regular' dry wine from here, the 'Grosse Eule' is marked by a powerful phenolic structure, but here the ageing has rounded the edges, leaving a pure, very intense and supremely elegant wine with a superfine minerality. It has enormous depth and concentration, but an ethereal quality too, lots of energy and a fantastically long finish. A very exciting accident - may it become an annual occurrence!
