Vineyard: The fruit for this dry wine comes from our sustainably farmed Hühnerberg vineyard covered in blue and grey slate and brown quartz. The Hühnerberg is known for its perfect South-by-Southwest facing slopes high above the Mosel in the Kautenbach valley. This wine comes exclusively from ungrafted, old vines, 50-80 years old. Riesling vines have been cultivated on this spot since the Roman times.


Specifications: 11% alcohol, 2.4 g/l residual sugar, 6.4 g/l total acidity.


Production Notes: The fruit for this wine is deep, rich and intense, produced entirely from the best and oldest vines in this vineyard (40-50 years old). It is carefully hand picked later in the season to allow for ideal ripeness. All fruit is painstakingly hand sorted to allow only the best grapes to be crushed for the grand cru. The juice is fermented by natural occurring yeast only - no added cultures - slowly at cold temperatures until the perfect balance of acidity and fruit is reached. The wine was aged sur lies for 10 months, then aged in German Oak barrels. This wine was bottled on 29 July 2017.


Tasting Notes: This dry wine displays the perfect balance between pure, rich fresh fruit and mineral flavors indicative of the Middle Mosel valley. It displays a tart but floral bouquet of grapefruit, pear, melon and earthy spices. Bone dry yet driven by chalky minerals on the palate leaving a beautifully floral and herbal feel to the finish. This wine is complemented by a rich meal such as crustaceans and cream sauces. Will be best 2020-2031.
