94Wine Spectator

The vibrant structure and clarity set the tone for its peach, citrus and mineral notes. It's refreshing and alive, with a mouthwatering finish.

92The Wine Advocate

... aromas of spiced green apple, blackberry, kiwi, honey, flowers, and a hint of white raisin. The wine bursts onto the palate with juicy fruit intensity, abundant spice, fruit skin pungency, and wet slate and salty minerality...

91Vinous / IWC

Sedate aromas of blueberry, honey, apple and mint. Pure and rich on the palate, with subtle nut oil and spice notes. Finishes with bright brown spices, succulent length and lovely lift and delicacy.


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.
