In 2008 the vegetation period was without extremes with an even distribution of rainfall, budding at the
end of April and flowering in mid-June. The ripening stretched until September and October. The
harvest began on October 17 with careful pre-selections and continued on until November 13. After
fermentations have stopped, the Riesling – young wines from the vintage 2008 – taste racy, elegant, and
delicately fruity. Lots of finesse and crystal-clear brilliance promise drinking pleasure and lots of aging
This wine shows a wonderful racy minerality, offers an excellent structure and remarkable depth.
Pairings: This wine is a perfect match for classic fish dishes and seafood.
"A fruity style, just off-dry, with plenty of peach, grapefruit and nectarine notes. Turns drier on the finish, with a white pepper aftertaste. Drink now through 2012. 49 cases made. "
"Papaya, lemon oil and sweet herbs on the nose. Crisp and clean, with salty acidity, this old-vine riesling has the weight of an auslese. One of the finer dry wines from the Mosel in 2008."
