Description

Hand picked Riesling grapes are meticulously selected from the finest vineyards of Piesport to produce this focused and intense effort from young Philipp Kettern of Lothar Kettern Winery. Grapes are pressed without maceration and pumped into
fermentation barrels right after short sedimentation. Long and cold fermentation takes place partly in wooden barrels and partly in steel tanks. 

This careful production creates a fine Riesling wine with amazing aromatic flower of white fruit, such as peach, which matches perfectly with the classic citrus. Complex mineral flavour on the dry, thirst quenching palate with an enduring finish. Try with crisp salads with vinaigrette or spicy Thai food.

Weingut Lothar Kettern is an engaging family owned winery, now run by 3rd generation member, Philipp. Their aim is to maintain high quality, traditional styles of wine whilst producing in a modern way. The family own holdings in many small parcels around Piesport, on both sides of the river, including the premium vineyards situated perfectly on the South-facing, and extremely steep slopes on the bend of the Mosel river. These sites allow perfect ripeness of Riesling grapes. They balance the classic, austere acidity of this variety with delightful fruit character.
