Vineyard: Heinz Eifel Mosaik Estate Dry Riesling is a cuvee made from Riesling
grapes grown on our Estate vineyards in the middle Mosel Valley
of Germany. Visually, each of these vineyard sites link to create
a beautiful Mosaik. The same is true when blending the component
wines from these individual sites. This dry Riesling wine is very
harmonious with both power and grace. It has beautiful intense fruit
flavors and marvelous minerality.
2015 Vintage: Weather conditions in June was much better and the bloom was completed
by middle to the end of the month. After a rainy July fortunately the summer
came in August with hot and dry weather, followed by a great September
and record high temperatures in October with more than 20°C on several
days. That means ideal conditions to fully ripen the grapes. The Riesling
harvest started mid of October and was finished beginning of November.
The number of high-quality wine vintages in the Mosel wine-growing region
continues. Must weights are often late and reading area. After the moderate
temperatures in summer the autumn still brought the Golden October
just in time for the late-ripening Riesling grapes on the steep slopes of the
Mosel river. The Riesling grapes had a very long ripening phase, which
greatly benefits the fruit and aroma characteristics. The state of health of the
grapes was particularly pleasing as it provided best possible prerequisites for
top wines in all quality grades. Wine lovers can look forward to distinctively
fruity, well balanced white wines.
Flavor: Exudes flavors and aromas of peaches and citrus. A well balanced
young, fresh and fruity wine with crisp acidity.
Food Affinity: Its slight sweetness makes it a perfect match with aged cheeses,
chicken and cream sauces.
Alcohol: 11.0 %
(MOH zel zar ROO ver)—This dramatically beautiful region of western Germany produces exceptional white wines from the Riesling grape. Among the lightest in Germany, these wines usually contain less than 10% alcohol and they are generally delicate, fresh, and bursting with flavor. With its flowery tastes and aromas, Mosel Riesling is a great wine to drink in the spring. Look for the words “Erzeugerabfüllung” or Gutsabfüllung,” which indicate that the wine was estate bottled and not mass-produced.
