This winery is located in one of the best locations along the Mosel river. It has vineyards with an incline of up tp 86% requesting hand work only. Bernhard Kirsten is know to consequently ensure the quality of his wines not only in the cellar but mainly in the vineyard. Rigid pruning and picking of the grapes when they are most aromatic are the main criteria of his work. This results in wines that express the Mosel characteristics perfectly.
Even his dry wines do not lose the typoical fruity aromas of the Moselriesling. For us his style so far is unmatched.
Riesling Trocken 2016
The wonderful aromas of this wine are dry and fruity with a great crisp and fresh finish. Kirsten's Rieslings each share a core of minerality that prevails over primary fruit, but this dry bottling is particularly savory in style. It's refreshingly spry with layers of smoke and chalk notes meandering amidst sheer streaks of fresh, white grapefruit and apple.
Beautiful wine that is tender but mineralic, very aromatic with yellow fruit, a mouthful of wine that needs the next sip right away. 12 % by volume, 7 g/l sugar, 7 g/L acid
Enjoy this wine as an aperitif or with grilled fish or chicken ideally combined with a nice chutney.
