Meulenhof Estate Riesling Trocken 2020

$20.00
Excl. tax

This is a “QbA” but is not chaptalized. It’s slim and scented of lilac. It has a firm and plum-blossomy finish; it’s barely “sweet” and is a lissome appealing wine.

Since 1337 the property at Meulenhof has shifted between royalty and Cistercian monks, following Napoleonic secularization, and since 1919 has been led by the Justen family, with Stefan Justen at the helm since 1990. Located in the Middle Mosel village of Erden, one can see why the estate vineyards were most attractive to both the Counts of Sponheim and the Cistercian Convent. Holdings in the steep, terraced Erdener Treppchen and prestigious Prälat have long been revered for their superior wines, and upstream the Devonian blue slate of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr produce wines of intense minerality and elegance.

Stefan is one of the last few vine growers with original rootstocks in this area. Vines on the steep slopes are post-trained, which requires a significantly higher amount of labor, with the cuttings from pruning shredded to provide compost for the vines. Fruit is hand-harvested, each parcel is vinified separately in cask, and the must is clarified before indigenous yeast fermentation, both essential at Meulenhof.
