Mosel Riesling

"Bright green apples, elderflower and icing sugar.  Rich mouthfeel with mouth-watering acidity. Great ability to age."

Nikolai St George, Chief Winemaker, Giesen

"It's a perfectly ethereal medium-dry riesling with floral, citrus and mineral flavours flattered by gently mouth-watering acidity. "

Quality & Taste

The wine designation labels you'll see on our Mosel Riesling tell the story of high quality German wine production.

The Prädikatswein classification indicates superior quality, and was historically associated with the top level of German wines.

Spätlese, meaning "late harvest", means grapes were picked at least seven days after normal harvest once they have had more time to ripen. Not to be confused with New Zealand's late harvest which are usually dessert wines, Spätlese wines are typically half dry - not as sweet as something like The Brothers Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc.

The taste of this Riesling immediately hits you with mouth-watering acidity, bright green apple and elderflower, yet finishing semi-sweet with notes of icing sugar and honeydew.

Mosel Region

Riesling Pradikatswein  B.A. Spatlese 

We're proud to introduce our first Riesling from the Mosel region in Germany. The Giesen brothers' boutique Riesling vineyard on the slopes of Reiler Goldlay allows us to bring a small allocation into New Zealand for our friends and family to enjoy. This has been planned for many years, so we're excited that this first edition has arrived in NZ.

Mosel Riesling 2018

"It rocks great flavours of white peach, green apples, lemon zest and finishes on a crisp, lingering note of crispness coupled with succulence.18.5/20 Joelle Thomson
