Winemaker Notes

Grans-Fassian estate is one of Germany's finest wine producers. Gerhard Grans, owner and winemaker of the estate, has been named Winemaker of the year and won both the Riesling Trophy and the overall White Wine Trophy at the International Wine Challenge in London. This Riesling shows the elegant mineral and racy style of the slate soil vineyard in the Mosel Valley.

Excellent with fish, cheese and Asian cuisine or simply as an aperitif.

Wine & Spirits
This is riesling in Technicolor. Catherina Grans and her father, Gerhard, selected this from plots planted in the blue-gray slate around Trittenheim, on the right bank of the Mosel. While it’s not their most ambitious wine, it might be their most profound, a wine that presents its generous, multilayered flavor with a selfless ease. It smells like heaven, if heaven were filled with flowers and ripe fruit arranged on a cool stone table, keeping everything pristine; it tastes like a walk around the table, with short stops to bite into a juicy apple or soft peach, inhale the fragrance of some lilacs or relax against the cool stone.

Grans-Fassian, Mosel, 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.

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.

A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining easily identifiable typicity. This versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Riesling is best known in Germany and Alsace, and is also of great importance in Austria. The variety has also been particularly successful in Australia’s Clare and Eden Valleys, New Zealand, Washington, cooler regions of California, and the Finger Lakes region of New York.

In the Glass

Riesling typically produces wine with relatively low alcohol, high acidity, steely minerality and stone fruit, spice, citrus and floral notes. At its ripest, it leans towards juicy peach, nectarine and pineapple, while cooler climes produce Rieslings redolent of meyer lemon, lime and green apple. With age, Riesling can become truly revelatory, developing unique, complex aromatics, often with a hint of petrol.

Perfect Pairings

Riesling is quite versatile, enjoying the company of sweet-fleshed fish like sole, most Asian food, especially Thai and Vietnamese (bottlings with some residual sugar and low alcohol are the perfect companions for dishes with substantial spice) and freshly shucked oysters. Sweeter styles work well with fruit-based desserts.

Sommelier Secret

It can be difficult to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling, and German labeling laws do not make things any easier. Look for the world “trocken” to indicate a dry wine, or “halbtrocken” or “feinherb” for off-dry. Some producers will include a helpful sweetness scale on the back label—happily, a growing trend.
