Riesling 2015

Region: Germany / Mosel
Grapes: 100% Riesling

These Riesling grapes were discovered by a husband and wife team in the famed Mosel Valley in Germany. Steep vineyard sites in Trittenheim and Piesport feature fine, mineral-rich slate soil and optimal exposure to sun and wind, giving the wine its distinctive, classic and world-renowned flavors. The vineyards are 100% hand-harvested to ensure top-quality grape selection. Traditional wine-making methods are observed, with individual wine-pressing techniques passed down through generations. Vinification takes place in stainless steel and oak casks over 4-6 weeks, followed by aging in tank and oak casks for 3-8 months.

harvest note

Typical winter conditions led to a normal bud break. An unstable June led to a very long but untroubled flowering period. The summer was extremely hot and dry leading to some water stress on the vines and most importantly delaying ripening. Uneven weather in September made winegrowers nervous, but this gave way to exceptional weather in October for harvest: cool, dry and sunny, keeping sugar levels in check and locking in an exceptional vintage.

tasting note

Off-dry with crisp acidity and vibrant fruit, featuring citrus, stone fruits and pineapple with a mineral-infused finish.

food pairing

A choice companion for meals the world over - sweet and spicy Asian, Indian, and of course German – and will also stand up on its own as an exceptional aperitif.
