Winemaker Notes

Number 81 on Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2004!

The exotic flair of this Riesling is composed from the aroma of lemons and limes, slight mint echoes, as well as a touch of lychee, tarragon, banana, pear and pineapple. Everything is awash with a vigorous residual sweetness and this, combined with a delicate fruity acidity, allows the flavors to melt beautifully slowly on the palate. The Magdalenenkreuz is a refreshing wine, which makes the water run in your mouth. Perfect for Asian cuisine, and to accompany everything that is fruity, sweet and sour, hot and intensively seasoned with chili, star aniseed, coriander, ginger, soy sauce and sesame oil. Magnificent with apple strudel and custard.

Critical Acclaim

WS 92
Wine Spectator
A tantalizing mix of apricot, orange, rose and mineral meshed in a creamy texture, all backed by vibrant acidity. Concentrated and long, with a crispness at the end that will become integrated with time.

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.
