With its origins in France, it’s no wonder that the wines from the Mosel epitomise elegance, finesse and charm. Cutting a meandering course through miles of impossibly steep slate slopes, the Mosel is THE river for Riesling. Tourists flock from all around the world to marvel at the medieval castles, ancient timber-framed houses, the gravity-defying vineyards and the world’s lightest, most cerebral whites. The combination of aspect, angle and age of vines all contribute to this unique microclimate that sees Riesling ripen to perfection whilst retaining acidity and forming a myriad of aromas.
This little slice of grape-growing heaven is deftly exploited by Markus Molitor, one of the world’s greatest winemakers with plots in the finest sites.
