If you’re looking for the truest expression of Riesling in the world - you’ve come to the right place.

Mosel Riesling is famed for its ‘minerality’ - the stony, flinty character that makes it so distinctive. The best soil for this is red slate - which the Annaberg vineyard behind this wine sits on.

I was looking for a good Mosel Riesling and Gerd Stepp tipped me off on an old friend - Laura’s dad Gunter.

Making wine isn’t for the faint-hearted around here - no machine could get near the 45-degree plus angled slopes. So everything is done by hand. And you can taste this care and attention in Laura’s wines.

Look at the label and you’ll see a steep gold line streaking through it - this is the actual steepness of the slopes of the vineyard!

This steep aspect gives the grapes perfect exposure to the sun to ripen fully, while the slate soils keep them cool and fresh at night.

The wine itself is fresh and citrusy on the nose, and on the palate it’s soft, pure and elegant. It’s perfectly balanced with a long mineral finish - the flavour and complexity belies its mere 11% alcohol. This will age nicely for years.

Laura says: 'Classic tarte flambée with onions and bacon (or as a onion tart) and tarte flambée with goat's cheese, onion and honey, few ingredients, but super tasty, not too heavy and goes perfectly with the wine (the goat cheese should not be too dominant), bacon from the village butcher and onions from the local farmer.'

Light and floral white

Zesty taste, stone fruit with some minerality, ideal introduction to younger drinkers to get to know this magical noble grape

Lovely Riesling

We tasted a range of 5 white wines and this was the highlight. Refreshing sweetness and nice lower alcohol content. Really good!

Not as dry as I had hoped

This Mosel Riesling is a tad sweeter than I prefer. Notching special
