Erich Weber obtained a portion of the west-facing Euchariusberg vineyard in 1979. Currently, he runs the vineyard together with his son Johannes and produces exceptional wines from the Saar hills. The Euchariusberg vineyard is primarily composed of gray slate and quartz and is considered one of the highest-quality vineyards in the Mosel region. They practice sustainable farming by avoiding the use of herbicides and maintaining low yields. The wine is characterized by its crisp freshness, tropical fruit notes, and fine minerality, with a touch of ripe sweetness.

Mosel Fine Wine: Issue 66

(94 points)

The 2022er Krettnacher Euchariusberg Riesling Spätlese Klaus (the reference to this internal cask name is provided in small print on the label after the AP number) comes from fruit harvested on 60-year-old vines in the prime Gross Schock sector of the vineyard and was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar. Still very reductive at first and herbal at first, this needs a few minutes in the glass to reveal a superbly attractive and fresh nose of minty herbs, aniseed, elderflower, Conference pear, and mustard seeds. The wine is superbly juicy and mouth-coating on the layered and spicy palate. The finish is layered and finely aromatic. This is a beautiful Spätlese. 2032-2047
