The 2nd to last wine drunk in the Mosel and absolutely the BEST dry wine of the entire trip. 100 year old vines, ungrafted from the coldest, northern section of the Goldgrube. If Schwarzkopf crystals were liquid, this is what they would taste like. "...bone-dry wine (with 2.2 g/l of residual sugar) made from Riesling grapes harvested in the Trabener Schimbock situated in the continuation of the Wolfer Goldgrube. Half of the grapes were pressed directly and half of the grapes were kept for 3 days for cold soak, and were pressed with an old basket press and was fermented and matured in stainless steel tanks. It presents a magnificently reductive and spicy nose, which only gradually gives way to white flowers, fine spices, zesty fruits, smoke, lime tree, and anise. The wine is superbly playful and fully dry, yet it has great energy and focus. There is some phenolic and tannic presence which needs to integrate. This is a gorgeous dry Riesling." – Mosel Fine Wines, No. 62, June 2022

German Wines

Is there a better grape than Riesling? Is there a better value? Its fruit purity, its perfume, and its mineral nuance are all unparalleled. And for centuries, the top German Rieslings were priced accordingly: at least as expensive as the top red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy. But nowadays you could spend a lifetime exploring Germany’s great Riesling-producing regions while staying well within your budget. You might take an occasional break to try Germany’s other white grapes or perhaps a glass of Spätburgunder (the local name for Pinot Noir). It’s time to get started!
