This wine is clear; has an ultra pale straw core with gold and silver highlights
In the nose you will find the typical aromi of a vintage MOsel Riesling. You will find fully intense and developing aromas of warm hay, honey, ripe stonefruit and stewed apricots, a super-intense line of crisp/vibrant minerality is piercing and yet balances thr ripe fruit perfectly
This wines is not dry (64.7 grams sugar/L), full (yellow grapefruit) acids, moderate- body, moderate- alcohol (9% ), fully intense and developing flavors that mimick the nose with that strong current of minerality running rampant throughout... a strong spicy finish reminiscent of great Gewurztraminer. Excellent balance, very good structure and long length
This wine has the acidity and sugar levels to ensure a long life in the cellar.

Asian food or sweeter seafood match well with this wine (grilled lobster a match made in heaven or with fresh spicy Thai coconut curry the sweetness in the wine is a great counter balance to the spices)
The 2008 vintage style is minerally with lively electrifying acidity. The wines have the inimitable tension between fresh, fruity sweetness and racy acidity. With lower alcohol levels, they will be fun, light and easy drinking, with finesse. This brilliant Spätlese has captured everything that Mosel Riesling is about. In between the typical Piesporter grapefruit notes, one can find ripest pineapple and herbs. In the mouth the wine comes alive and finishes with the silkiness of the minerals.
