This is the entry level Riesling from the famed Monchhof estate. The Eymael family purchased this estate in 1804 at which point the it was under control by the monks of Himmerod. A great family history that includes the great John Jacob Astor, one of New York City's first great businessmen.

Winemaker's Notes:

Grown on all iron-infused Devon Slate, this wine first feels like biting into a ripe white peach, juicy, rich, creamy and sweet, with a full aroma. Yet the wine offers great minerality and acidity to balance the sweetness and make it, well... a delicious joy. Most of the fruit comes from the famous grand cru vineyard site “Würtzgarten” (spice garden) in the town of Ürzig, which gives the wine its spicy profile.
