Description

  • Stone fruit
  • Medium-dry
  • Bright acidity
  • Lower alcohol

A strong, full-bodied wine with a ripe acidity and expressiveness. A pleasant finish due to the lighter alcohol level, and a great thirst extinguisher on a hot summer day!

After the long winter, a fast vegetation start was unexpected. On average, March was colder than January and brought snow again. In April, however, summer began almost seamlessly. The warm weather and sufficient water provided a fast and relatively early budding. Thanks to the warm weather there was a very early flowering. Fortunately, this vineyard was spared from storms with heavy rain and hail. Due to the persistent dryness, the lack of water was the dominant topic for a long time. Due to the continuing warmth and dryness, noble rotten grapes were harvested with must weights up to 270°. The aroma of the grapes as well as the moderate acidity let the winemaker's expect full-bodied, fruity and harmonious Moselle wines.

After almost 250 years, and for eight generations, viticulture has run in the Kerpen family. Riesling is grown exclusively on around 8 hectares made up of several named vineyards: Graacher Himmelreich, Graacher Domprobst, Bernkasteler Bratenhöfchen and Wehlener Sonnenuhr. The interplay of Moselle slate, south-southwest aspect, minerality and climate is unique. The result is wines with a fine play between fruit and acidity, a low alcohol content and a long life. After carefully selecting the grapes by hand, they are gently pressed. Then the must fermented in wooden barrels and matured to dry, fine-dry, fruit sweet or noble sweet wines.
