RATINGS

96The Wine Advocate

...refined and elegant on the nose where perfectly ripe Riesling and white truffle aromas are displayed. On the palate, this is an intense, dense and finessed Riesling with great tension, salinity and complexity. The finish is aromatic, pure and very long...

96James Suckling

...great depth of super-ripe yellow fruit aromas and stunning textural richness...great finesse at the very long finish.

93Vinous / IWC

Peony and carnation perfume, fennel and piquant peach kernel combine for an attention-getting nose. Luscious flesh of white peach lends welcome generosity on a polished, subtly creamy palate... Chalk dust, fresh ginger and white pepper serve for intrigue and incisive invigoration on a vibrant finish mouthwateringly laced with saline, maritime mineral notes.

18.5Jancis Robinson

...very generous texture vindicates the assumption of great ripeness... Nuances of lemon sherbet stimulate the salivary glands...

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.
