“Perfect drops from German river country ‐ I have to admit to a strong bias towards the wines of the Mosel‐Saar‐Ruwer region. Here the wines of Max Ferd Richter stand at the forefront. If you have never tasted these wines …. cast aside your prejudices and buy a bottle labelled Kabinett (plus the vineyard name, such as Wehlener Sonnenuhr).
Make sure you share it with someone – because you will want a witness to the extent of your ecstasy.”
“These are, quite simply, the most exciting wines available anywhere in the world today.”
James Halliday, The Weekend Australian
“I now go one step further and suggest that the kabinetts of the Mosel were designed in heaven”
Weingut Max Ferdinand Richter has been producing Riesling in the Mosel since 1680. The Richter wines exude great class and breeding along with their classical Mosel raciness, fruitiness and mineral complexity. This Estate relies purely on must weight for the quality and grip which makes Richter not only one of the most exciting estates in Germany, but one of the finest exponents of Riesling anywhere in the world. They ferment in old oak demi‐muids and assemble the finished wine in an inert vessel following stabilisation and prior to bottling.
The noble Riesling grape is amazingly resilient on the steep slate slopes of the magnificent Mosel River. A run of great vintages, especially 2015, has witnessed Mosel Riesling reclaiming the mantle where it so deservedly belongs and becoming (dare I say it) trendy!
