£ 17.95, 75 cl
[group][varieties][labels][put size in title]

Grown on the famous slate stones of Mosel, this bright fresh, fruity wine has invigorating acidity and well-balanced fruit-sweetness. 30 hours of skin contact emphasises the classic Riesling flavours, after which it spends 5 months on its lees to soften the racy acidity.

Tasting notes

This Riesling is bright yellow with youthful reflections in the glass. It has aromas of fresh fruits and mineral notes. This wine has a fresh, invigorating acidity and a long. lingering finish.

Vinyards

Tres Naris Riesling (‘Tres Naris’ means ‘Three Noses’; turn the label on its side and the hills of the Mosel become the noses of Axel, his father and his grandfather) was harvested from the family’s steeply sloping vineyard in Lieser. Here, the soil is predominantly blue slate, which is cooler than the red slate of neighbouring Bernkastel and seems to give more minerally wines than the latter. Stringent crop-thinning and leaf-plucking ensured excellent flavour concentration in the ripe grapes. The vines are aged between 20-40 years old.

Vinification

The grapes underwent skin contact for 30 hours prior to fermentation in stainless steel tanks in order to extract precious Riesling flavours. After a slow, cool, temperature controlled fermentation, the wine was kept on fine lees for five months, which resulted in a more mellow, smooth wine.

Producer

Axel Pauly is one of the rising stars of German wine. He took over the Pauly estate from his father after doing vintages in California, New Zealand and other parts of Germany. Most of the nine hectares of vineyards are in the heart of the Mosel Valley in the village of Lieser, with the exception of a small parcel in the highly regarded, neighbouring village of Bernkastel. The majority of Axel's wines are dry or off-dry in style and are closed with screwcap to preserve the purity and freshness of the Riesling grown on the famous slate soils of the Mosel.
