Topf - Riesling Wechselberg Spiegel "M" 2017
Producer: Topf
Wine name: Riesling Wechselberg Spiegel
Classification: Kamptal DAC
ABV: 13.5

Grapes from the same “monopole” erste lage vineyard as the regular Wechselberg Spiegel, but this time with 15% of the skins in the ferment. The end result feels less focused than the regular Spiegel, and the alcohol here starts to dominate. Very youthful but has some vegetal notes. Acidity and minerality are there in spades but this isn’t a charmer right now, though it may well get there with more age.

Kudos though, for this subtle use of skin maceration in the context of a classified “grand cru” site.
