A Justerinis Exclusive: The AP #4 Baby-Auction Spätlese from Weingut Forstmeister-Zilliken
22 September 2022

Regrettably, the Zilliken estate produced a reduced range of wines in 2021. Just single fuders of regular Spätlese and Auslese were produced, the latter filled with a selection of single berries - truly a labour of love! Such was the small production and huge demand for these wines around the world that the Zillikens very graciously offered Justerini & Brooks exclusivity on a Spätlese that they had originally earmarked as a candidate for the prestigious VDP auction in a few years’ time, designated by the AP #4 (rather than the standard AP #5).

This is therefore the only place in the world you can buy the wonderful Rausch Spätlese #4, at a price that reflects its huge potential whilst avoiding any frenzied price escalation, such as those we saw this weekend in the Mosel and Nahe auctions. 2021 is a superb, classically-proportioned vintage and this magical Spätlese is hauntingly long and complex, but almost weightless. Resplendent with an array of smooth fruits, crackling slate notes and a trembling acidity, it can be appreciated in its youth for its sheer energy and vitality – for it is a huge step up on the regular Spätlese found elsewhere – but it will also easily go twenty five years in the cellar if desired.
