More information on wine critics and ratings

This vineyard is so steep that, long ago, stone steps (“Treppchen”) were built into the hillside to help workers reach the vines. The iron-infused, red slate soil produces wines that are muscular and complex, with an intense mineral finish.

The Spätlese designation means that the grapes get an extra week or two of hang time, which helps them develop higher ripeness and deeper flavors

Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2015)
The 2015 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spätlese opens with clear, precise, fresh and elegant, flinty flavored fruit aromas of ripe Riesling grapes. Round, piquant and not all too sweet, this is an elegant, lush, piquant and racy-mineral Spätlese. It has a lean, straight and pretty salty finish. Pure, piquant and stimulating, this is a gastronomic Spätlese with 8.5% alcohol and moderate sweetness, but a lot of grip.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 94 Points (2014)
Bursting of sweet yellow cherries, tangerines and peaches, this fragrant, finely filigreed spätlese screams classic Mosel. Searing lemon-lime acidity counters lush, sunny fruit flavors, finishing with a crystalline haze of honey and nectar. It's stunning now, but has plenty of stuffing to carry through 2025 with aplomb.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 93 Points (2014)
Offers lots of creamy accents to the pure, fresh flavors of apple cobbler, peach and dried apricot. The long, succulent finish echoes with rich, silky notes of dried green herbs and lemongrass. Drink now through 2034. 300 cases imported.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 93 Points (2013)
This wine reflects Erdener Treppchen’s ferrous red soils clearly in the red cast of the fruit, from the red-apple scents to the notes of tart, tiny berries. It gets meatier with air, its earthy flavors growing deeper and more resonant with each sip. Powerful stuff, this calls for a meaty main course, like pork with lingonberry jam.
