Description

After almost 250 years, and for eight generations, viticulture has run in the Kerpen family. The interplay of Mosel 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 is fermented in wooden barrels (neutral barrels). This wine represents some of the first grapes to be harvested, lower sugars resulting in lower alcohol and the ferment stopped, leaving some natural residual sugar.

Smells

Gorgeous aromas of honeysuckle, rock melon, pears, and citrus peel.

Tastes

The perfect Riesling for a warm sunny afternoon, aromatic, flavourful and delicious. Ripe pear and citrus flavours with stone sucking acidity that gives freshness and keeps you longing for another sip. Drink with fresh fish and seafood.
