Kettern Goldtropfchen Riesling Trocken 2013

Get to know: Kettern Goldtropfchen Riesling Trocken 2013

Tasting Note

A highly classy, and classic, style of German Riesling at the top of Kettern's collection. For this they tried to create a powerful yet a light wine by selecting
only the best vines from the best parcels. The result is a dry and very fine wine that has superb, pure concentration and an electric, vibrant acidity that has allowed it to age beautifully. Green apple and lemon fruits are lifted by wet slate minerality and white flowers. A wine with volume, body, power and substance all in perfect harmony.

Try this with a pork schnitzel or a buckwheat salad with hummus and pickled veg.

Producer Info

Philipp is the 3rd generation of this engaging family estate, making Rieslings of a class worthy of your attention. He now looks to produce wines in his own modern way, but retaining the high-quality, traditional style he has inherited - with his father still around to advise.

The family own holdings in many small parcels around Piesport, on both sides of the river. The best come from the 'Grand Cru' vineyards of the Goldtröpfchen and Falkenberg, situated perfectly on the South-facing, and extremely steep slopes on the bend of the Mosel river.

These sites allow perfect ripeness of his Riesling grapes. He balances the classic, austere acidity of this variety with delightful fruit character, and, of course, a range of sweetness levels across the Prädikatswein scale.
