RATINGS

95James Suckling

Very concentrated and ripe, but not at all heavy this is a luscious dry Mosel Riesling that great energy and originality.

93The Wine Advocate

...pure and flinty on the nose, with bright fruit and mineral aromas on the nose. On the palate, this is a piquant, fresh and well structured as well as intense and persistent Riesling with cacao flavors in the finish. Terribly fresh and piquant., this is a remarkable Riesling.

92Wine Spectator

...paraffin behind marzipan, apple, spice and mineral flavors, combined with concentration and depth. Dry and expansive, and the components are all in harmony.

92Vinous / IWC

White peach, fig, muskmelon and lime are site-typically accented with anise and smoky black tea on an effusive nose and a luscious, lush, silken-textured palate. One finds not only smokiness and chalky stone infusion but also a tingling sense of crystalline mineral impingement to the animated, long-lasting, mouthwateringly salt-tinged finish.

17Jancis Robinson

Very fresh and lively on the nose. Big, bold and broad on the palate. Lots of texture and bravado.

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.
