Ref: A090412

A dense and concentrated wine with a lively acidity balancing the hint of sweetness that comes through. Good length with a confident finish. Drink now - 2018

Von Kesselstatt is one of the largest owners in this most famous of Saar vineyards, the Scharzhofberg. Saar wines are more steely, slatey and minerally than those from the Mosel vineyards.

Von Kesselstatt focuses on the natural characteristics of the vineyards and applies the utmost care to maintain the natural fertility of the soil. Yields are held very low between 40 and 55 hl per hectare by pruning and green harvest. Fertilization is conducted according to organic principles and all means are geared towards support of the natural ecosystem.

The knights of von Kesselstatt first arrived in the Duchy surrounding the town of Trier as early as the 14th century.

The Kesselstatt Palace, situated in the heart of Trier opposite the Cathedral is one of the most remarkable examples of Baroque architecture north of the Alps and was home to the Estate and its wines from 1746 until 1999. The entire Palace, including the inner-courtyard was lovingly restored to their original glory by Gunther Reh following his aquisition of the Estate in 1978.Today the Palace is a thriving cultural centre and popular meeting place with its winebar and Kesselstatt restaurant. In 1983, Annegret Reh together with husband Gerhard Gartner succeeded her father as head of the Estate. In 1999, together with their long-serving team they transfered the entire wine operation to purpose built facilities on the River Ruwer at Schloss Marienlay.

Annegret and Gerhard Gartner have, over the past decade been able to achieve the almost impossible, that delicate balance between a successful working relationship and private life. Inseparable both from each other and their love for food and wine.

Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt today ranks among the most prestigious and renowned Riesling Estates on the Moselle and indeed throughout the whole of Germany.

Champagne Gremillet
Extremely elegant wines that have undergone a surprisingly long bottle-ageing process that gives them a roundness not often found at this level.
