Fritz Willi Mosel Riesling

Fritz Willi Mosel Riesling

The Friedrich Wilhelm Gymnasium name originates from the Jesuit school founded in Trier in 1561. Through the centuries, wine production from the estate's vineyards helped to support the school. Today the estate consists of around 25 hectares on the steep slopes of the Middle Mosel and Saar - all exclusively dedicated to Riesling.The cellars lie deep under the city of Trier - where a stone in the foundations bears the date 1593. Here fermentation takes place in stainless steel or in traditional Mosel 'Fuder' (1000 litre barrels.The school itself changed names a number of times following its foundation, but an interesting note is that one of its more famous pupils was Trier-born Karl Marx!

Vineyards

The Riesling grapes are sourced from the steep slatey soils of the Saar and Mosel.

Vinification

After careful picking and selection, the grapes are fermented in 100 litre oak Fuder and stainless steel - both parts blended later to add complexity. The wine rests on its fine lees before bottling.

Tasting Notes

Fragrant aromas of ripe apricots, citrus and apple. Minerality and ripe, rounded stone fruit flavours are balanced by zesty lemon sherbert characters - giving an appealing off-dry style which retains a surprisingly crisp finish.

Great with pasta and bacon dishes, grilled fish and scallops.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
