Vinous Reverie Notes
Markus Molitor described as ‘The Lord of the 1,000 Rieslings’ and s a true Riesling magician. This Riesling Spätlese* comes from steep slopes that rise on both sides right next to the winery. Markus Molitor has led his "house location" Wehlener Klostergarten to the top. It is located in a side valley directly opposite to Zeltingen, and faces almost due south. Light to medium-heavy stony soils of decomposed slate with a high proportion of iron produce mineral-driven and long- lived wines with delicate, elegant fruit. The grapes were softly crushed and macerated for several hours on the skins. After maceration the juice was fermented using only natural yeasts. Tasting Notes: The wine rests on the lees in stainless steel tanks following fermentation producing a balanced and aromatic wine. Sparkling light yellow with greenish inclusions. A lot of yellow and exotic fruit with the typical slate minerality in the finely spicy scent. Juicy on the palate, extremely stimulating like a cool mountain stream, full of tension, precise and wonderfully fresh. Lots of fruit from ripe vineyard peaches, citrus fruit, apricots, mango, pineapple - accompanied by salty and spicy herbs. Ultra stimulating right up to the finale and demanding the next sip. Drink now until 2040.
