Hofgut Falkenstein Krettnacher Euchariusberg (AP 14 Ternes) Riesling Spätlese, Mosel, Germany 2020
In 1979, Erich Weber acquired a section of the west-facing Euchariusberg vineyard. Today he's joined by his son Johannes and together they're making magical wines from the hills of the Saar. This highly prized Euchariusberg vineyard is primarily comprised of gray slate and quartz, regarded as one of the highest quality vineyards in the Mosel. They farm with the outmost respect to the earth, never using herbicides and keeping the yields low. Crisp-fresh, tropical fruit, finest minerality with ripe sweetness.
Pairing: Mild blue cheese, creamy poultry liver pate
