Riesling

75cl * Vegan & Sustainable * 8.5% ABV * Mosel, Germany

The Erdener Treppchen vineyard is truly a ‘grand cru’ vineyard in the village of Erden on the banks of the Mosel river. The site was rated as a ‘First Vineyard’ (Erste Lage) in the 1868 Prussian classification of the Mosel, a reputation it has kept over the last 150 years. It's name - Treppchen literally means staircase - refers to the terrace steps cut into the precipitous slopes centuries ago so that workers could reach the vines. 

If the wines from the Wehlener Sonnenuhr seem like a graceful "ballerina," those from the Treppchen resemble muscular free-style climbers! The volcanic activity and the formation of the meandering Mosel Valley produced the distinctive red soil of this area. This iron-rich, red slate soil produces wines that are racy and complex, with weight, power and an intense mineral aftertaste.

This is a stunning, zingy off-dry Riesling Kabinett with floral notes, citrus and peach. There is fantastic minerality and well balanced acidity. It is drinking beautifully now but will also benefit from a few years in bottle.
