Description

Pale golden yellow with bright green tinge. Nose of quince, banana, lychee and pear with a hint of apricot. On palate the wine is full and lively with a fine balance between acidity and fruit. With moderate complexity, it remains a beautiful expression of Riesling's elegance from a master of avant-garde winemaking in Moselle.

Subregion

Untermosel

Lower Mosel: the finesse of steep slopes

The Lower Mosel comprises the final 100-kilometre section of the river between the village of Pünderich and the site near Koblenz, where the Mosel flows into the Rhine. This sub-region is often known as Terrace Mosel, where steep slope viticulture is reflected in its most impressive form. In the micro-terraces that often sit at dizzying heights over the river, Riesling demonstrates its complete expressive powers.

Mosel: in Riesling territory

In the valleys of the Mosel, Saar and Ruwer, the white Riesling variety fully fulfils its potential. Mosel is not only the German growing area with the highest proportion of Riesling; the largest number of steep slopes are also found here. Around 40 percent of the vineyards are situated on gradients of greater than 30 percent, and must be cultivated with labour-intensive manual work. On the slate soils, Riesling presents its entire inimitable range, from dry to semidry to noble sweet..

Germany – Into the elite the hard way

Sitting in the heart of Europe, the hilly, lake-dotted landscape of Germany provides ideal, fertile soil for the most diverse vine varieties. From Albalonga to Zweigelt, over 140 different grape varieties are grown on about 100,000 acres, cared for by nearly 50,000 vintners. Most of these vintners are young, modern, internationally trained, inquisitive and urbane. It is hardly surprising, then, that German wine has a good reputation well beyond the country's borders.
