Bernhard Jakoby Erdener Treppchen Spatlese 1981
We got this stock from Stephan, the owner of our most popular German estate, Stephan Ehlen. He bought the entire stock from his neighbour who inherited the collection from his father Bernhard Jakoby in 1986. These were aged undisturbed and in perfect conditions in the stone underground cellar at the winery so they are still amazingly fresh and lively. Oh and they are incredible value too!
A lighter vintage, with that classic petrol, kerosene note that old Riesling gets. Lots of richness on the mid-palate with a ripe, stone fruit marmalade character
