93+ Pts Stephan Reinhardt - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"With higher must weights than the regular Spätlese the 2013 Lenchen Spätlese 303 (a dedication to the founder Josef Spreitzer who once got famous with his 1920 Oestricher Bremerberg-Eisenberg Trocknbeerenauslese which was harvested with 303° Oechsle) is slightly lower in alcohol (8 instead of 8.5%) and also has slightly more residual sugar (95 g/l compared to 88 g/l). Opening to brioche and raisin flavors on the nose, this light-bodied but full-flavored, pure and mineral wine is stimulating, piquant and juicy with its sweetness well hidden in the purity and minerality of this intense Spätlese. Great aging potential. " Reviewed Jan, 2015
About Weingut Josef Spreitzer
"Weingut Josef Spreitzer in Oestrich cultivates 21.5 hectares of vines of which 97% is Riesling, the other 3% Pinot Noir. The estate is managed by Andreas and Bernd Spreitzer, the grandsons of founder Josef Spreitzer. Their vineyards are in Oestrich (Doosberg, Lenchen, Rosengarten and Klosterberg), Hattenheim (Wisselbrunnen) and Winkel (Jesuitengarten). The 3.5 ha cru Rosengarten (formerly a part of the Lenchen) is officially permitted as a single vineyard site since the 2013 vintage. There are only 3 producers in the Rosengarten, besides Spreitzer (who owns 2.5 ha) J. Wegeler and Weingut Kunz (who both own 0.5 ha and are both located in Oestrich).
1/3 of the volume is aged in old traditional barrels (Doppelstück of 2400 l) but the percentage will grow; the Spreitzers bought 4 new barrels (1200 l Stückfässer) this year. All of their wines have seen oak, especially in vintages with a higher acidity. The Grosses GewÃ¤chs wines of the 2013 vintage were already amazing and forced me to visit the estate in late October to taste the rest of the portfolio which is absolutely convincing. 2013 has been an excellent vintage for the family estate which offers a proud range of diverse Rieslings. "In 2013 we started harvest on October 17 with our Josef Spreitzer Riesling trocken, and we stopped that main harvest November 2nd with our St. Nikolaus Grosses Gewächs,â says Bernd Spreitzer. Thanks to the de-leafing of the grape zone throughout the vegetation period they harvested "more than 90% of healthy grapes."
Spreitzer's dry Kabinett wines are very good but starting with the Charta Riesling especially the wines with residual sugar are excellent of not great. This estate was always very good but I don't think they have ever been better than today. Unfortunately many of the 2013s are already sold." eRobertParker.com #216 (Part 2)
