The 2017 vintage year breaks two records: on the one hand it is the earliest harvest in living memory, and on the other the crop is lower than ever before in the past five decades. In terms of quality, however, the vintage offers the entire spectrum from entry-level qualities to Trockenbeerenauslese. Very warm March with partly summery temperatures, shoots already started at the beginning of April, extreme late frost from 19th to 20th April, dry and warm weather from beginning to middle of June ensured a rapid flowering process. Then the grapes developed extremely quickly, July brought the long awaited rain, but sometimes with undesirable side effects such as thunderstorms, heavy rain, squalls and hail, a lot of precipitation and hot and humid weather in August further accelerated the development of the vines and ensured the earliest start of the grape harvest. Harvest.

Delicious citrus bouquet; elegant and vivid, the wonderful acidity is perfectly matched by the strong minerality of the wine; a typical Mosel Kabinett. Food Recommendation: Good in combination with cold cuts and/ or cheese platters; refreshing and cheerful for social settings and gatherings.
