Where It's From

Region / Mosel

View more wines from Mosel

The German wine region, Mosel (or Mosel-Saar-Ruwer), produces some of the most beautiful white wines in the world, particularly Rieslings. The cool climate and Devonian slate soils in this region are said to lend to the unique character of Mosel Rieslings, with their floral nose and distinct minerality.

Country / Germany

View more wines from Germany

The German wine-making tradition is long and illustrious, dating back to as early as AD 800. And for a country just slightly smaller than Montana, Germany produces and consumes a great deal of wine (it's the seventh-largest producer and sixth-highest consumer).

Germany is situated at the most northerly latitude at which grapes can ripen; the winters are cold and the growing season short, all of which, incidentally, are nearly identical to the Finger Lakes Region of New York. Most of its wine regions are situated in central and southwestern Germany. The most significant are the Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Rheinpfalz, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Nahe, Franken and Baden.

The Riesling grape is king in Germany, even though it represents only 20% of total plantings: Müller-Thurgau (a Riesling-silvaner cross) has the most, followed by the red grapes Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and Dornfelder. In good years and in the care of master winemakers, Riesling makes one of the greatest white wines in the world, with a perfect balance of sugar and acid, exquisite fruit and fragrance and with considerable potential for aging.

Simultaneously juicy, very lively and elegant. Spot-on balance and brimming with white-fruit and lemon (fruit and blossom) aromas. Very clean and straight finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2022
A fruity, juicy style, this Riesling delivers peach, lime pate de fruit and violet flavors. Sleek, lingering on the tangy, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2037. 400 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 9th Dec 2021
Coming from 80- to 90-year-old vines, the 2020 Elisenberger Riesling Spätlese is based on the last grapes harvested by Team MFR, with still moderate must weight. Fermented 100% in casks, this wine shows a clear but still reductive nose with ripe, intense and elegant fruit aromas as well as flint notes. On the palate, this is still an extremely young, vital and tensioned Riesling with ripe and juicy fruit but still many restrictions and serious grip. Promising but far too young to be fairly rated, two-thirds of the 2020 was fermented in casks and one-third in steel. 7.5% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted from AP 1921 in November 2021.

This Spatlese beams you up to Cloud 9, from where you have a wonderful view over the beautiful Mosel Valley. In spite of the considerable concentration, this is super-delicate and precise on the barely medium-bodied palate. Enormously long finish, where you barely feel the natural grape sweetness. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)
RP95+95+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 25th Aug 2022
The 2020 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese is pure, clear and flinty on the concentrated nose that is reminiscent of a fresh fruit salad served on a slate plate on an early summer morning. Light, lush and highly finessed but seriously structured on the palate, this is a savory, very clear and elegant Sonnenuhr Spätlese with great precision and finesse and highly stimulating salinity and mouth-watering grip on the finish. The acidity is crystalline and very delicate, making this another great Mosel Spätlese from the 2020 vintage. 7.5% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine from AP 37 21 in July 2022. (Stephan Reinhardt)
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2022
An energetic, well-built wine, with juicy peach, fleshy lychee and guava flavors set against fine mineral and racy acidity. Delivers a flash of ginger, which adds nice warmth to the zesty finish. Drink now through 2040. 160 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

The 2020 Bernkasteler Badstube Kabinett offers an aromatic bouquet of fully ripe fruit and crushed stones. Round and mouth-filling on the palate, this is a hedonistic Kabinett with very fine, mineral acidity. Just a dessert on its own. 8% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine from AP 26 21 in July 2022. (Stephan Reinhardt)
JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, November 10, 2022
Bright nose of apples, white peaches and spring flowers with a touch of blackcurrant. Ripe, yet very sleek and straight, this is barely off-dry, thanks to the very crisp acidity at the super-refreshing finish. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)

A super-expressive and very bright wine for a Mosel Spatlese with a ton of currant fruit right across the spectrum from black to white. Wonderfully complex palate that’s as juicy as it is herbal, with a touch of wild berry character that lifts the finish beautifully. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)
RP92+92–94 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 25th Aug 2022
The 2021 Ürziger Würzgarten Spätlese is coolish, clear and herbal on the nose, with ripe bright fruit and flinty terroir aromas. Good intensity. Lush and round yet also tangy and savory on the palate, this is a seductive and crystalline, saline and elegant Würzgarten that will come out as a long-distance runner. Tasted as a sample ready to be bottled in July 2022. (Stephan Reinhardt)
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2023
Despite the rich, ripe profile, this shows serious savory character, with green tea, spicy white pepper and smoked celery seed infusing a base of green plum, kiwi and clementine. Long and silky. Drink now through 2031. 1,000 cases made, 500 cases imported. (Kristen Bieler)

So much lemon and herbal freshness with a touch of licorice. Excellent balance of mineral acidity and delicate fruit on the very lively palate, the grape sweetness barely perceptible. Very crisp, clean finish.
