Lothar Kettern, Fio 2016 Piesporter Goldtroepfchen Riesling Spaetlese

One of the attractions chez Kettern is their preference for releasing wines like this classic after several years in the cellar. Our previous vintage was 2014! Like its predecessor, this version has that uniquely feather-light texture that belies the mineral charge within, which is lifted forth by the perfectly calculated (and not inconsiderable) residual sugar. One can only hope that the current preoccupation with trocken wines does not ring the death-knell of this unmatchable Mosel genre.
