Hild Elbling Trocken, Germany 2021

Elbling is Europe's oldest indigenous varietal.  However, most of the best plots in Germany were ripped out in favor of its noble relative Riesling.  Only some 1,500 acres of Elbling remain in production, almost entirely in the upper Mosel.  Thankfully, there are some who tirelessly ensure the continued existence of this important grape. 

Matthias Hild has a small plot of Elbling, terraced on the limestone slopes of the upper Mosel, which he looks at as his pride and joy.  He is humbly preserving this honest workhorse wine that holds a special place in the history of the region.  With any luck, the fruits of his devotion may catch the eye of the American wine drinkers who have begun to crave just such dry low-alcohol wines. 

Matthias' 30-to-60-year-old vines produce an electric dry white full of vivacious acidity and citrus notes.  This is an exceptionally light and fresh wine, coming in at just 11.5% abv while remaining dry.  Did we mention it's dry?
