“Brave men who work while others sleep, who dare while others fly… They build a nation’s pillars deep and lift them to the sky.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Tasting Note: “Our 2500 vines produced only 900 bottles of wine! In 2015 we had the perfect combination of both weather conditions and an appropriately garrulous Australian winemaker to produce our first ever traditional and uber Mosel-esque Riesling. The wine brought back memories of my time doing harvest in the Mosel with Dr Loosen in 2004. In the 8 weeks that I worked there I only saw winemaker Bernhard Shug get animated once and that was when the Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese fruit was coming in to the winery. Living on a vintage diet of nicotine and Bitburger beer he was positively dancing around the winery. Vintage didn’t really start until the Kabinett and Spa¨tlese was in and the big gun Auslese started to arrive, then it was time to go up a gear. The wine will age magnifcently. There is no need for food matching… this is a wine that needs to be matched with an occasion. Think along the lines of Sunday morning breakfast with Puccini booming out of the stereo….or in front of an open fire in a cabin in the mountains… or at the seaside as waves crash into shore and a storm is about to roll in….” – Michael Glover, winemaker
