Trossen Schiefergold Purus 2018
Two small vineyards with very old, rooted Riesling vines have survived the phylloxera invasion. The two vineyards are also inaccessible for winch working and have to be worked by hand, in laborious manual labor lasting for days with the karst, the old Moselle hand hoe. The vines enjoy friendly people in the vineyard. Especially if they like to be there and do the work with dedication. In terms of effort, this is our most demanding vineyard. But the quality of the grapes, small, golden and delicate, thanks the care with an extraordinary pleasure experience.
The 2018 slate gold captivates with cool elegance, noble finesse, and mysterious depth. The wine touches less by its aroma, but rather by its reserved nature. One could almost say: it is shy. But if you bring a little time with you and want to get involved, it will take you on a journey through time, bringing us into contact with the sunshine of last summer and the cool mountain water that the powerful roots have sucked out of the darkness of the ancient slate fissures. Everything absorbed, the light, the warmth, the salt, is condensed in the berries, transformed into slow, cool fermentation, and newly created, like a phoenix from the ashes, now present in the glass in radiant beauty in colour, scent, taste and effect.
If you don’t believe that the best Moselle wines were valued equal to the most expensive Burgundies 120 years ago, you may start your studies here.
