An exciting Spätlese that has an amazing amount of natural sugars and is full of apricot and white peach with a hint of honey & nectarine. From the Trittenheimer Apotheke vineyard, this particular Spätlese is sweet and brings forward the full character and intensity of flavors that a Spätlese can produce. The nose is loaded with citrus and tropical fruits and the body is rich and round. With well-balanced acidity and outstanding mineral composition, this Spätlese has it all. A lemon bar in a glass!!!
Pairings: Ethnic cuisine (Thai, Indian...) and spicy dishes, also strong blue or hard cheeses and simple desserts!
Reviews: Wine Spectator: 92 pts Elegant and creamy, sporting apricot, peach, vanilla and slate favors backed by a bright structure. Well-balanced and tangy on the finish; it's hard to resist now. Drink now through 2030.
The Blees-Ferber estate is located on a hill above Leiwen in the Bernkastel area, showcasing a beautiful view of the Mosel and the surrounding vineyards. Since winemaker Stefan Blees has taken over production of this family-owned estate in the mid-nineties, he has successfully increased the quality of the estate’s wines year over year. Today, he has a reputation as a phenomenal grower-producer of Riesling, the most noble German grape variety.

Perhaps the most intriguing and picturesque landscape in all of Germany’s wine country lies along the peaceful banks of the Mosel. The Mosel River stretches from its spring in the French Vosges along the Luxemburg border for almost 320 miles northeast, where it finally empties into the Rhine near the quaint town of Koblenz.
The Mosel is considered to be Germany's oldest wine growing region with production dating back to Roman times. It is also considered the world's steepest wine growing region with over 50% of vineyards situated at inclines of over 30°. It is home to the world's steepest vineyard, the Bremmer Calmont, which has an incline of 65°.
