  • TASTING NOTE: Classic Riesling bouquet, clear, slate minerals, juicy yellow fruit fruit aromas and touch of spice. Delicate, rich, yet fine, long-lasting minerality, very invigorating.
  • ABOUT THE WINE: Fruit is sourced from various steep slope vines all characterized by blue-grey Devon slate they are grown in. Grapes are gently ground and briefly macerated on the aromatic and mineral-rich berry skins. The must was then fermented spontaneously, slowly and coolly, so that the multi-layered, fruity aroma of the wine could fully express itself. A gentle expansion in stainless steel tanks and partly in large wooden barrels, with long storage on the fine lees, followed after fermentation.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Markus Molitor has been working in the vineyards since he was ten years old. When his father Werner lost his arm in an accident, he literally became his right-hand man. Since taking over the reins of the family company in 1984, he has grown the Mosel-based estate from 1.5ha to 120, comprising many top Grand Cru sites on the steep slopes of the Middle Mosel and further south in Saar region. More impressive still, Molitor works numerous parcels of un-grafted vines with many aged 100 years old or more. One of the largest family-owned vineyards in the region, with all farming based on organic principals, Molitor still follows centuries-old traditions in the cellar. All wines ferment spontaneously and are aged in wooden barrels without the use of fining agents, enzymes, additional yeasts and other additives. The wines then age on their fine lees for months, endowing them with greater lustre, elegance and fullness. Molitor avoids using the traditional categories to indicate ‘dryness’ in Riesling. He claims his “focus is on the harmonious taste and balance of the wine which cannot be determined solely by analysis of residual sugar content and total acidity”. Instead, the colour of the capsule (foil) indicates the style and respective flavour profile of his Rieslings: white represents classically fermented wines (dry); green is feinherb, the historical medium-dry style of Mosel wines; gold indicates richer, nobly sweet wines, including berry-selection styles Beerenauslese and Trockenbeerenauslese.
