RATINGS

94James Suckling

What a great combination of ripeness (and a hint of caramel) with racy freshness! stunning dry wine from Heymann-Löwenstein...

93+ The Wine Advocate

...pure, fresh and rich at the same time, with flinty aromas on the nose. Full-bodied, precise and piquant on the palate, this is an elegant, fresh and salty Riesling with a lot of tension and length. Powerful. Long,

92Vinous / IWC

Rowan and heliotrope hauntingly garland ripe white peach and pear on the heady nose and luscious, satiny palate. Hints of site-typical anise, piquant nut and fruit pit counterpoint, and a hint of sweetness – a function of the wine’s low acidity – are all supportive. For its sheer richness, this seamless Riesling’s lingering finish delivers refreshment as well as transparency to wet stone underpinnings.

16.5Jancis Robinson

Rich and almost velvety on the nose. Big and bold.

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

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.
