2019 Max Ferd Richter Mülheimer Sonnelay Riesling 'Zeppelin', Mosel

Tasting Notes

100% Riesling fermented in temperature-controlled old oak barrels (Fuder) with natural yeast.

A nose of apple, citrus and slate stone. Clean and pure structure, mineral texture with rich mouth filling flavours of orchard fruits. A zesty and spicy refreshing style with a well balanced structure and elegant fruit acid, finishes with great length.

Vineyard Information

Based in the heart of the middle Mosel, Dirk Richter's estate is one of the finest and most highly regarded in Germany.

The winegrowers of Mülheim on the Mosel were able to make the proud boast that their Riesling from the Mülheimer Sonnenlay vineyard was that most frequently poured during the Zeppelin flights during the 1920s and 1930s - From this, Mülheim gained its reputation as Zeppelinwein. Today wines from Mülheim are still marketed with the Art Deco Zeppelin label, a reminder of the days when the Zeppelin crossed the Atlantic and passengers relaxed in its luxurious restaurant sipping this delicious Riesling
