Max Ferd. Richter in View from the Cellar

John Gilman has just reviewed the 2018 vintage from Max Ferd. Richter, his first proper visit to their winery. He says of the estate and the vintage:
"The style of the wines here is beautifully classical, with lovely underlying minerality, pure, delicate fruit tones and plenty of filigree and cut...The range of 2018ers here that I tasted with Constantin were excellent, with lovely, zesty acids, very pure and precise fruit expressions, lovely, salty minerality and fine filigree for the lower Prädikat levels. At the level of Auslese, there was a bit of botrytis available to work with in the Himmelreich and Juffer-Sonnenuhr vineyards, so the Auslesen from the estate from these vineyards are defined by a delicate touch of really beautiful, very clean botrytis."
