This Riesling has perfect balance and floral notes
These vines populate the south-facing vineyard that was originally planted in Riesling early in the 17th Century. Of Roman origin, wines from this, our steepest vineyard, are distinguished by notes of chamomile and saffron, produced by a rich cover of medical herbs. This vineyard, lying in a side valley near Trarbach, provides wine with elegant structure and complex fruit aromas and ripe, fine acidity.
This close-to-dry wine displays the perfect balance between pure, rich fresh fruit and mineral flavors. The nose offers the typical spice of the Ungsberg scents of yellow herbs like chamomile and saffron.
The fruit for this wine comes from our sustainably farme vineyards. The Ungsberg is known for the extreme pitch of the slopes high above the Mosel River, as well as for the herbal spices from the healing herbs grown in the vineyard since the Roman-Celtic era.
Riesling vines have been cultivated on this spot since the 17th Century. The fruit for this wine is deep, rich and intense, produced only from the best and oldest vines in this vineyard (40-60 years old).
“Mossy, wet stone and fusel notes on the nose mingle with scents of fresh apple and lime. A subtly creamy yet juicy, tangy palate impression leads to an at once soothingly and stimulatingly sustained finish, bittersweetly tinged with walnut, underlain with mossy wet stone, and laced with mouthwatering salinity.” – 90 points, David Schlidknecht, Vinous
