WINEMAKER NOTES

This entry-level Riesling is a Cuvée made from early harvests in our 5 steep-slope vineyards. We believe the success of this wine, our most popular, is a consistent, well-balanced, dry to off-dry wine with pleasant mineral qualities. A fresh, delicate Riesling with a sparkling, balanced acidity and mineral quality.

TASTING NOTES

Dry, crisp, clean, and delicate with an animating acidity. This balanced Riesling shows a fine minerality with hints of mellow fruit tones and floral notes. A great wine to accompany hearty meals.

VINEYARD

The fruit for this wine comes from our sustainably farmed vineyards on steep slopes high above the Mosel River. The fruit is a carefully developed blend of fruit from our four of our five vineyards: Burgberg, Ungsberg, Schlossberg and Taubenhaus.
