Markus Molitor Germany Riesling Spatlese Mosel Wehlener Sonnenuhr 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The Molitor family have been making wine at their estate for 8 generations. The home of the winery lies situated above the Moselle in the middle of the Wehlener Klosterberg vineyard, with a view over to the vineyards of Zeltingen. With over 34 hectares of well-sited vineyard, Markus is one of the middle Mosels most important growers. Markus Molitor's vision has been to help restore the wines of the Mosel valley to their former glory, with unmistakeable Riesling wines true to their individual vineyard identity (terroir) and of extreme longevity. Markus Molitor excels at weaving together that incredibly tense and vibrant mix of minerality, acidity, sweetness and ripeness, and has produced a selection of almost sixty wines from numerous vineyards, every possible Pradikat level. The Markus Molitor Bernkasteler Lay Riesling Spätlese Trocken hails from a very good quality parcel in the heart of the site, with extremely old vines. The slate here is decomposed and fine, regularly producing excellent quality, very ripe grapes with very elegant and fine fruit. This Reisling exudes Aromas reminiscent of ripe apple, tangerine, lime, white pepper, nutmeg, mace and flint stone. Light, vibrant, fresh and juicy with refreshing acidity and a complex. The Bernkasteler Lay Riesling Spätlese Trocken is particularly Delicious with oriental cuisine - try it with a tartare of tuna, sea bass with shrimp dumplings, baby bok choy and shiitake soup.
