Rita and Rudolf make a huge variety of wine for such a small estate, and they are relatively unique in the Mosel for making such distinctive and creative cuvées. But that doesn't mean they can't make the classics—wines such as the 'Vom Berg' Spätlese that adheres more to what most people would consider to be a "Mosel Riesling".
This is an off-dry, piercing Riesling with an electric touch and only 8.5% ABV. The soils of the vineyard are south facing steep slate, and the 40-year-old vines are as healthy as can be. Indigenous yeasts are used as always, and because this is traditionally made, there is filtration and SO2 used to prevent the sugars from re-fermenting. Since this is Trossen wine, don't expect a SO2 bomb on the nose, but rather purity, elegance, and delicacy.
