Trittenheimer Apotheke

The vineyard is situated in Trittenheim, about 30 km downwards the river Mosel from Trier, the old Roman city, and 25 km upwards from the idyllic small town Bernkastel Kues. Trittenheim lies on a peninsula, from which Mosel flows around. At the right side of Mosel, opposite the village, is the world-famous steep hill "Trittenheimer Apotheke", in which the vineyard preserves and maintains its largest occurrence of old Riesling vines. Trittenheimer Apotheke is one of the best vineyards of the middle Mosel, the steep slate slopes always creating wines that are beautifully elegant.

Tasting Notes

An off dry wine made with the Riesling grape. The wine reveals aromas of peach and apricot. Well balanced by great acidity, it is full flavoured and textured and has an elegant and clean finish.
