Vineyards & Winemaking:
The grapes are picked from vines grown in predominantly slate soils on steep slopes throughout the Mosel Saar Ruwer valleys. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel, resulting in a crisp, off-dry style Riesling.
Fragrant aromas of white peach, nectarine and Bosc pear backed by pastoral scents of hay or straw. The wine has a touch of sweetness backed by refreshing acidity.
The Mosel River winds its way northeast from the Vosges mountains of France until it joins Germany’s Rhine. Above this twisting waterway is a magnificent patchwork of vineyards and ancient castles that cling to steep, verdant hillsides. To be qualified as “steep slopes” 100% of the fruit must come from classified vineyards which have an incline of at least 30%. In this area of Mosel, the average incline of vineyards is 45%.
