Riesling takes its classic, crystalline form in this dry bottling. Crisp and bright, it gains character from 50-year-old Riesling vines located just 1,000 meters from the Mosel River near the town of Bernkastel.

- Scores:“Gosh! So chock-full of wild-flower (biodynamic) flavours. Really beautiful. Gorgeous already. Vital and unlike the Mosel Rieslings of old (more potent and drier) but such a well-balanced joy. Intense but not heavy. Great to drink with or without food. But probably not for the very long term. 12,0 %. Drink 2021-2028. 17 points Jancis Robinson 2021
