Theo, Alex and Marcel Giesen have fond memories of their grandfather, August, travelling to Mosel to buy barrels of the region’s world famous Riesling. So much so, they were prompted to purchase a vineyard and make their own wine in this iconic German region.

Giesen Mosel Reiler Goldlay 2018 is unashamedly Germanic. With its fruit grown on the slopes of the Mosel’s most regarded winery area, it’s a showcase of the region’s ancient slate soil and cool climate of its origin, showcasing high minerality, giving way to flavours of lime, lemon, melon and pineapple. It’s perfect balance between minerality and tropical flavours is thanks to its dryness.

German wine labels can be some of the most confusing around. The Giesen Mosel is labeled as; Pradikatswein classification, meaning a wine of superior quality. Sweetness category Spatlese, meaning later harvest or half-dry. These are not as sweet as New Zealand late harvest wines which are more like dessert wines.

Very reasonably priced for a German Riesling and also very good! Perfect summer sipping!
