Weingut Monchhof 'Estate' Riesling 2016

Member Review by strokine:

Sweeter than I prefer. Nice Riesling but there are better. Got it for $27. Would probably buy more if it would be around $15.

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.

Excellent sugar/acid balance in this wine. Great spicy quality with a long finish

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.

Mönchhof's Mosel Slate bottling seems to highlight the tropical nuances of the variety. The wine has lots of ripe pineapple and mango on the nose and finishes with pronounced Slate-y minerality.
