Alte Reben Riesling (White Capsule)

    • Description :

      Vineyard: The grapes for this wine come from Molitor's oldest vines from the steep slopes along the river Mosel. The vineyard sites are located between Brauneberg and Traben-Trarbach in the Middle Mosel area.
      Vinification: The grapes were softly crushed and macerated for several hours on the skins. After maceration the juice was fermented using only natural yeasts. The wine rests on the lees following fermentation producing a balanced and aromatic wine.

      Tasting notes :

      "Slightly reductive at first, this only gradually opens up to reveal ripe notes of fruits including yellow peach, apricot and strawberry. A touch of smoke and spices comes through with airing and adds depth to the nose. The wine is very delicate and superbly focused on the palate, where white flowers and herbs come through. It leaves a very long and zest infused feeling in the finish. This beautifully light and complex expression of dry Riesling only needs a few years of bottle aging to blend its elements and show its full potential." (Mosel Fine Wines, Issue 38)
