High above the banks of the Mosel River, a unique blue slate terroir reflects the sunshine of the day, warming vines and allowing grapes to ripen to the perfect point of sweetness.
This distinctive blue slate is the inspiration for blüfeld Riesling.
Because the blue slate helps protect the vines from the cold autumn weather, blüfeld is typically harvested in mid-October, a month later than most white varietals, and at the peak of Riesling ripeness.
A year of near perfect weather has produced grapes of stunning quality. The sunny but dry late summer has yielded a harvest rich in aromatic, healthy, and fully ripe grapes. This year will go down in history as a truly great vintage.
