Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for this wine are handpicked from the traditional steep slate vineyard sites along the Middle Mosel. This Rieslong is fermented with natural yeasts and rasied on it's fine less. Aromas reminiscent of vineyard peaches, honeysuckle, cinnamon and melon. Juicy and elegant, balanced with mineral notes. Good ageing potential.
My Notes:

About Markus Molitor:

Markus Molitor took over his fathers Estate at 20 years of age. Although having been of young age, Markus had a clear vision of wine making. Every vintage and vineyard should show its characteristics. His wines illustrate depth and structure with the typical uniqueness of the Mosel terroir.

Markus Molitor is the largest Estate on the Mosel with 94 acres of vineyard land. Markus produces 95% Riesling, 3% Pinot Noir and 2% Pinot Blanc.
