TASTING NOTES

The first whiff of ripe peach, red apple and stony minerality lets you know this is classic Mosel Riesling. There are layers of apple, stone fruit and a hint of pink grapefruit, but the tingling fresh acidity keeps this from being any more than slightly off-dry. The minerality offers a crunchy salinity to the mid-palate. The finish is fruit-driven, but crisp.

These vineyards are some of the steepest on earth, so the hand harvesting is done heroically, rappelling up and down the precipitous slopes using harnesses. The wines are gently pressed, then given some skin contact to add complexity and bite, before the long, cool fermentation using indigenous yeasts. The wine then ages in a combination of stainless steel and old, inert barrels before bottling.

Having cut his teeth interning with the iconic Markus Molitor, Markus Hüls is a new generation vintner, fundamentally turning traditional ideas of Mosel wine upside down. Modern management techniques in the vineyard are as important for him as time-honoured wine making methods. He selects special vine populations that are grafted onto extremely slow-growing rootstocks; these vines grow so slowly that the first yield is not expected until the fifth year after planting! The aim of this far-sighted action is a permanently low yield on the vine in the most natural way possible. With respect for nature, region and tradition — and an extra large dose of passion — Markus creates his own, modern style of complex, mineral, regionally-typical Mosel wines.
