Food Pairings for Markus Molitor Riesling Auslese Wehlener Klosterberg
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. Markus Molitor Wehlener Klosterburg Riesling Auslese is a biodynamic wine made from 60% healthy grapes and 40 % Botrytis grapes that were crushed softly and macerated for several hours on the skins. Consequently this Riesling is a wonderfully rich and sweet wine, exuding aromas reminiscent of acacia honey, full ripened peach, mango, flint stone, mace and white pepper. It has a perfect balance of acidity and sweetness, with creamy, clear minerality, and nice slate flavours on the palate. Therefore try pairing with Jerk chicken salad with red onions, green peppers and mint, followed by Tarte of white peach with vanilla-sauce and sorbet of wild berries to make the most of that wonderfully rich sweetness.
