Paulessen Riesling Zenit, Bender, Mosel
True Mosel Riesling from astonishingly steep vineyards that just dive right into the river Mosel. Very cool climate in style with only the red slate in the soils, and sun facing aspect that ripens the fruit. Light but so intense with razor sharp acidity and ripe sweet apples. Deliciously honeyed nose and a refined, fruit-ladened palate. Immense and long on the finish.
Andreas Bender first learnt about soil, viticulture and terroir from his father. He went on to study at Geisenheim and spent a few years working for different wineries in Germany, France, Italy and the USA before starting his own project with his family’s vineyards in 2008. His philosophy is really quite unique in the world of German wine: instead of following the widely accepted German model whereby top single vineyards are vinified and bottled separately, he blends them according to three different styles: Dajoar, Paulessen and Hofpäsch. While on the one hand his ideas are very modern, when it comes to winemaking itself, Andreas is very committed to tradition: he believes careful cellar work, simple winemaking methods and natural fermentation.
