Trossen Schieferblume 2018
The Schieferblume, means “Flower of the slate”, is a composition, a cuvee from several vineyards in which we planted Riesling.
We are fortunate to have particularly soft Devonian slates on the Moselle, mostly blue and grey slate, which warms up quickly and stores the heat of the day and then slowly radiates again at night.
This is the ”gold” of the Moselle, because on these stony slopes the water does not stand still, the Riesling does not like wet, cold ”feet”.
But what benefits the later quality of the wine is a certain positive stress, the effort, because the vine has to extend its roots deep into the earth and rock crevices.
It is from this effort of the vine to suck its water from great depths that the saltiness, minerality and thus elegance of Moselle wines result. This is why they were once highly valued as ideal accompaniments to fine food.
The slate 2018 comes mainly from this vineyard ”Langfuhr”, a single vineyard directly on the Moselle, surrounded by forest, meadows and the river. Only a cycle path leads there and I enjoy the perfect idyll there.
This is communicated to the wine, which is not at all ”excited”, but encourages casual chatting. Goes well with all fish and poultry dishes.
