98James Suckling

...combination of purity and refinement. Enormously deep and subtle, right from the beginning, but the breathtaking finish is what seals it. So deep and so delicate.

97The Wine Advocate

...ripe, deep, coolish, fresh and flinty yet darker-toned... Sweet and lush as well as piquant and finessed on the palate...very clear, precise and salty-crystalline yet highly refined and even mouth-filling Auslese with utterly balanced finesse...

97John Gilman

...beautifully pure, precise and energetic on the palate. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a beautiful young blend of pear, fresh apricot, white cherry, a fine foundation of salty minerality, orange zest, honeycomb, violets and apple blossoms. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish and vibrant, with a dreamy core of fruit, fine mineral undertow, ripe, buried acids, with laser-like focus, stunning complexity and grip and a long, electric finish.


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.


White Wine, Riesling, Auslese

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.
