Robert Parker (93/100)

Robert Parker (93/100): "Bottled after almost 16 years on the lees (bottling was in June 2016), the 2000 Riesling Vinothek from the Nikolaihof is neither based on power nor on richness but reveals a subtle and filigreed character with a good and complex finish. The wine opens with a clear, deep, intense yet pure and fresh nose where botrytis flavors intermix with earthy/leafy as well as spicy/herbal flavors. Sourced in the Vom Stein vineyard in Mautern (Wachau), this is a highly finessed, vital and eternally youthful Riesling with grip, tension and a long, complex finish. This is a deliciously textured Riesling that develops with time in the glass. It is easy to underrate but a delicacy for those who can read between the lines. The same wine from a bottle that was opened several days before showed an intense and mineral nose that led to a ripe, rich and intense palate with very fine tannins, grip and minerals and an aromatic finish with lingering tension and salinity. The 2000 seems still young and is stunningly pure and finessed given this warm vintage that produced so many heavy, opulent wines that are far over the top today. This Vinothek is a very rare exception. Bottled with 12.5% alcohol. Tasted three times between March and July 2017."
