Please see details of each wine below.
2018 Weiser-Künstler Trarbacher Riesling
Off-dry, light-bodied; crisp and rock solid
Pairing: Tahini toasts
2018 was immediately pegged as an outstanding vintage. Across the region, grapes achieved incredible ripeness. In this instance, the ripe character is complemented by Alexandra and Konstantin's trademark style of leaner Rieslings. They typically achieve this through a gentle, pneumatic press that squeezes less juice out of the same volume of fruit.
Alexandra and Konstantin are both from South Germany, but met in the Mosel where they put down their roots. Konstantin Weiser is originally from Bavaria Swabia; after he trained in wineries throughout Germany and also New Zealand, he is now in charge of the cellars. Alexandra Künstler is originally from Franconia and is now in charge of managing the estate.
2016 Daniel Vollenweider Felsenfest Riesling
Off-dry light-bodied white; zesty, very easy
Pairing: Crispy fish skin
Daniel's wines are unsurpassed in their magical intensity, often headlining with the Felsenfest, which loosely translates to ‘Rock Festival’. An alternative rock fan himself, Daniel sees this Riesling as a fun and easy-to-like wine that drums up a bit of excitement to a meal. Indulgent aromas of tropical pineapples and lime, some lip-smacking minerality and a lemon-zest finish, this is sure to be a hit!
