Tasting Note:

At 112g/litre, this has around 20g/l more residual sugar than the regular Auslese, but this is not about sweetness, it is all about depth precision and complexity. There is yet more high quality botrytis character, notes of dried apricot and peach, together with juicier flavours of nectarine and mirabelle whilst also showing fabulous darker fruit notes of red apple, victoria plum, red currant and cassis. Exceptional. Along with the Maximin Grunhaus of Carl Von Schubert, Eitelsbacher Karthauserhofberg is one of the very few monopole sites in the Mosel-Saar Ruwer, it is owned solely by the Tyrell family. The vineyard is situated in a protected side valley of the River Ruwer and is positioned south/southwest at 160-275 metres above sea level. The steep slopes are of rose-red coloured clay slate, high in iron and minerals. This gives a minerality to the wines and in certain very ripe years a distinctive cassis tone. Karthauserhof's Christoph Tyrell thinks this will prove to be one of the benchmark vintages in the estate's 200 year history, producing 4 different cuvees each of BA and TBA, something they have never done before. From basic Trocken right the way up to TBA, the wines are fully ripe, extremeley precises and boast a crystalline purity.
