From one of the highest regarded vineyard site in the Mosel, this sweet Spätlese from Piesporter Goldtröpfchen is delightful. Loaded with complex fruit, great acidity and fantastic balance, this wine is full of cantaloupe and honeydew. From one of the most highly regarded sites in the Mosel, the finish is full of ripe pear and apple tart. With vines situated on the perfect southward facing amphitheatre of the Goldtröpfchen, the river bows and the site soaks up ideal sun all day long. It is quite amazing how heat is conducted back into the soil in the evening, having been retained by the slate and shale during the day.

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°.
