An elegant, off-dry Riesling that tastes impeccably modern, fresh and vibrant. It’s from the renowned Richter family and one of their finest Mosel vineyards. Brilliant bright apple, lemon, floral and slate notes – a beautifully balanced white.
Mülheimer is a top village of the Mosel, its steep slate vineyards producing fine Riesling with lively minerality and laser precision fruit. We’ve been buying from the 17th century Richter estate there for a decade now, impressed today, as ever, with the winemaking of the 10th generation. They supply the royal cellars at Buckingham Palace, so presumably the Queen is partial to drop too. Hugh Johnson calls the Richter estate “an extremely consistent producer of classic Mosel Rieslings”. Sonnen means sunshine and there’s plenty of that, but don’t expect high alcohol. The terroir gives a wine that’s light on its feet – this 2019 is a taut high wire act of beautiful, late ripened fruit and cleansing acidity. A delight solo or with light dishes.
"Beautiful. Lovely citrus notes with apple and pear. Very refreshing and thoroughly recommended"
