Rather firm, juicy fruit with smoky and still a little nutty-yeasty tones, lively acidity, lots of grip, minerality in the background, lasting, fine spiciness, some depth, very good, firm, juicy and mineral finish, again with grip

Area (also Middle Moselle) of the German Moselle growing region (see in detail there). The eponymous municipality of Bernkastel-Kues with a population of around 8,000 is located on the Middle Moselle in the district of Bernkastel-Wittrich, about 50 kilometres from Trier in the federal state of Rheinald-Pfalz.

The oldest vineyards were located on the banks of the Rhine, Neckar and Moselle. These rivers with their elongated valleys, as well as their tributaries, are still the classic growing areas today. Viticulture was established by the colonization of the Greeks in Gaul and then brought to perfection by the Roman culture. The conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar (100-44 BC) brought Roman viticulture from...
