Riesling grapes from grey, blue and red slate soils from the family̥s single vineyard 'Mullay Hofberg' in the village Reil. The Melsheimer family luckily kept more than 90% of this vineyard within the family which allows them as one of the few biodynamic growers (certified by Demeter) in the Mosel to work without any conventional neighbours. Grapes whole bunch pressed and directly transferred into traditional Mosel Fuder̥s (1000L oak barrels) to ferment. In 2015 the fermentation continued for more than 36 months which gave this wine a laser sharp precision, for us closer to high-level Chablis than Mosel Riesling. No SO2 used throughout the vinification with a 25mg added before bottling.
