Made at a small co-operative in the Mosel. The Mosel River is the sinuous spine of the region formerly known as Mosel-Saar-Ruwer and now just as the Mosel. The river changes direction frequently as it flows northeast toward the Rhine, meandering nearly 150 miles as it covers a linear distance of only 75 miles. Together with its two small tributaries, the Saar and the Ruwer, the Mosel composes one geographical entity. The best wines come from the mineral-rich, slatey slopes and are made from Riesling, which accounts for some 60 percent of total plantings. Although each river’s vineyard area produces a wine with its own distinctive personality, the three share a family resemblance: a fragrance reminiscent of spring blossoms, a pale color, light body and a refreshing, fruity acidity. To add to their charm, they often have the slightest hint of effervescence.
This is a lovely, fresh, clean Riesling made in the classic fruity style of the region. The tropical peachy fruit on the palate is balanced by a lovely citric acidity. Sumptuous and delicious.
