Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas reminiscent of yellow peach, nectarine, mango, lime-tree blossom, mace, cinnamon, glove and flint stone. Complex mineral structure with a vibrant and tensional acidity, full bodied, juicy, rich with a long lasting finish.

Pair with nougat filled curd cheese dumpling with preserved spicy oranges and vanilla ice cream or brillant savarin with spicy peach relish and French baguette.

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.
