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
The vintage started our normally with bud break arriving on time. Rainfall at high levels in the early summer created some stress on the vines, and troubled vintners due to disease. Late frost and hail followed to create even more nervousness about the vintage. Thankfully the weather improved in mid-summer, allowing for a good harvest. Quality was good, though the wines showed lower in alcohol and higher in acidity.
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.
