RATINGS

96James Suckling

...great depth and power...dry and super-mineral finish.

93-94Vinous / IWC

...powerful scents and luscious palate presence of ripe white peach and apricot, hauntingly garlanded in headily perfumed buddleia. The textural counterpoint engendered by creaminess playing against piquancy of fruit pit, prickle of peach fuzz and underlying stoniness is captivating. Site-typical tarragon and anise emerge on a finish that displays a remarkable sense of lift...

91Wine Spectator

...filled with baking spice and mineral accents that surround the core of nectarine, passion fruit and currant flavors. Shows intensity and focus, with fleur de sel and burnt brown sugar accents emerging on the persistent finish.

PRODUCER

Weingut Heymann-Löwenstein

Weingut Heymann-Lowenstein was created in 1980 by Reinhard Lowenstein. He started with 12 acres of prime but steep vineyards in lower Mosel slopes and today owns 37 acres.

REGION

Germany, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer

Mosel-Saar-Ruwer is Germany’s most prestigious wine region and it is comprised of the vineyards surrounding the Mosel River and its tributaries, the Saar and Ruwer. This region is the northernmost of Germany’s primary viticultural areas, located on the western edge of Germany just above the northeast corner of France. Internationally Mosel Rieslings are considered among the finest white wines in the world. In Germany and elsewhere, the region’s name is often shortened simply to Mosel, and in fact since 2007 Mosel has been the formal name of the region for viticultural purposes. The references to Saar and Ruwer were dropped for ease of marketing. The distinctively crisp, mineral tasting, acidic Rieslings produced in Mosel are attributed partly to the region’s slate soils and extremely vertiginous vineyards. Many vineyards are on 60 to 80 percent cent inclines along the three rivers. Riesling grapes represent more than half of all the grapes grown in Mosel, followed by Muller-Thurgau, a white wine grape related to Riesling, and Elbling, an indigenous white wine grape often used for sparkling wines.

TYPE

White Wine, Riesling, Grosses Gewächs

This white variety originated in Germany. It’s known for its strong flowery aromas and high acidity. Please note Rieslings can have dramatic differences as the grape can be used to make dry, semi-sweet, sweet and sparkling wines.
