Max Ferdinand Richter Spätlese Erdener Treppchen 2018

$49.00

The vineyards here cling close to steep, rocky slopes that are only accessible by narrow stairs (Treppchen) carved into the hillside, but the hard work of tending to these vines is well rewarded. The ferruginous, red slate stone terroir produces racy wines with great complexity, showing intense yet spicy minerality and balance. The finish is nicely long and complex.
