A sweet wine with a cacophony of flavors: smokey, honeyed-peach, pineapple, almond cream, orange blossom, tangerine, candied grapefruit, violet, and pistachio. Weiser-Künstler from the dynamic couple, Konstantin Weiser and Alexandria Künstler, only started their project in 2005, is a new name by Mosel standards, but were immediately recognized as something spectacular. This wine is from un-grafted, 100+ years-old wines, perch precariously on old-fashioned stone terraced, overhanging the river below, farmed with organic and biodynamic methods, another throwback to simpler, pre-industrial times. Well farmed grapes on amazing sites don't always translate to the glass, here they do. Wine making is never by rote, each site, each vintage, each barrel, is made with thoughtful intention, to coax the very best into the bottle.

Konstantin Weiser and Alexandra Künstler are two immensely passionate people farming a tiny, but fantastic, plot of vines. These are micro-estates with only around 4 hectares total. Everything is done by hand and they farm everything biodynamically. The Rieslings they make vibrate with cords of tense minerality and acidity stretched across an incredibly pure and crystalline palate filled with salt-tinged floral and citrus fruit notes.

As soulful and authentic as their Rieslings are, Weiser-Künstler is a relative newcomer releasing their first wine in 2005. Their holdings are in Traben-Trarbach, just downstream from the more famous section of the Middle Mosel. This charming town was the heart of the Mosel wine scene at the turn of the 20th century with Art Nouveau architecture that proudly harkens back to that prosperous time. Weiser-Künstler is largely inspired by that era and, in fact, designed their owl-adorned label in that style. The owl represents wisdom, which is a reference to the literal meaning of Konstantin’s last name, Weiser.
