Monchhof Eymael Riesling Spatlese Mosel Slate 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Fine Wine Review: A careful reading of the notes on the back label reveals that the Mosel Slate Spätlese is in fact from the Erdner Treppchen vineyard, primarily from blue-gray slate. The wine is pure with lime/slate aromas, Mosel lightness (but from Erden it is a little richer than some others), balanced sweetness/acidity, and 8.0% stated alcohol. Perfect for drinking now and it will age substantially. (Issue #124; 2009)

Robert Eymael leads since 1994 the Wine Estate. Joke and humor paired with a quality-conscious individualism, describe his philosophy, which reflects itself in the inimitable style of its Riesling wines. The Mönchhof, formerly in the possession of the Cisterian abbey Himmerod, is one of the oldest Wine 'Estates at the Mosel. Pope Alexander III already confirmed the first Wine Estate possession of the abbey in the year 1177 in Uerzig. The monks of Himmerod built the wine-cellar at that time and in 1509 the estate you can admire today. In 1804, after the secularization by Napoleon, our family could acquire the Wine Estate in Paris.
