Tasting notes: Juicy green apple, lemon curd, honeydew melon, mouthwatering minerality/salinity You may notice that this wine is dry, but not bone dry -- a teeny tiny hint of residual sugar. I'm urging you to put aside your preconceived judgments...this wine is extremely well made, absolutely delicious and food friendly to boot!

About the Producer
The winery was founded in 2012 by Rebecca Materne and Janina Schmitt. Neither woman came from a winemaking region or family, but both pursued their passion for wine by earning degrees in viticulture and oenology at Geisenheim and mastering their craft at wineries in South Africa, Napa Valley, Provence, Austria, the Rhine and the middle Mosel. Their wines unerringly express the distinct differences in terroir that change rapidly along the twists and turns of the Mosel between Winningen, Kobern, and Lehmen. The wines are seriously structured and exemplary Terrassen Moselers: richly textured, living, breathing, at-times-Burgundian seeming wines, organically vinified with crystalline clarity. Their balanced intensity derives from neither acidity (6-7ish) nor alcohol (11.5-12ish) which are surprisingly modest. Rather, it is the slate expression of the vineyards that etches the wines and renders them with such precision.
