WS 90
Wine Spectator
Iris and tuberose notes mingle with apple and nectarine in this delicate, detailed Riesling. There's an undercurrent of mineral, and this gets support from the lively structure. Fine length. Drink now through 2018. 1,000 cases made.

Grans-Fassian, Germany
The Grans-Fassian winery founded in 1624, is situated next to the bend in the river Mosel between Leiwen and Trittenheim, one of Germany's most beautiful landscapes. Here wines are produced with uncomprehensing measures, as only is done along the Mosel: an intensive fruit of fine elegance with not too much alcohol but also - as known from Auslese and Eiswein - high quality wines of an overpowering fullness and sensational richness.

The winery owns 9 ha high qualified vineyard sites with Riesling and Weissburgunder (Pinot blanc). Amongst them the absolute top sites: Leiwener Laurentiuslay, Trittenheimer Apotheke, Drohn Hofberger and Piesporter Goldtröpfchen. The yield is between 30 to 70 hl/ha. The strong soil type "Devon Slate" provides the good drainage and gives the wine the mineralic and racy.

Mosel Wine

Following the Mosel River as it slithers and weaves dramatically through the Eifel Mountains in Germany’s far west, the Mosel wine region is considered by many as the source of the world’s finest and longest-lived Rieslings.

Mosel’s unique and unsurpassed combination of geography, geology and climate all combine together to make this true. Many of the Mosel’s best vineyard sites are on the steep south or southwest facing slopes, where vines receive up to ten times more sunlight, a very desirable condition in this cold climate region. Given how many twists and turns the Mosel River makes, it is not had to find a vineyard with this exposure. In fact, the Mosel’s breathtakingly steep slopes of rocky, slate-based soils straddle the riverbanks along its entire length. These rocky slate soils, as well as the river, retain and reflect heat back to the vineyards, a phenomenon that aids in the complete ripening of its grapes.

Riesling is by far the most important and prestigious grape of the Mosel, grown on approximately 60% of the region’s vineyard land—typically on the desirable sites that provide the best combination of sunlight, soil type and altitude. The best Mosel Rieslings—dry or sweet—express marked acidity, low alcohol, great purity and intensity with aromas and flavors of wet slate, citrus and stone fruit. With age, the wine’s color will become more golden and pleasing aromas of honey, dried apricot and sometimes petrol develop.

Other varieties planted in the Mosel include Müller-Thurgau, Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), all performing quite well here.
