100% healthy grapes were gently crushed and macerated for a short time on the flavor full grape skins. Afterwards the must was slowly fermented in temperature controlled casks, to protect and develop the fine fruity aromas of the grape variety. Aging in stainless steel and large wooden casks with great care and a long ripening period on the fine lees shaped this elegant and multifaceted Riesling. Aromas of red apple, pink grapefruit, pomelo and white pepper. Fruity, juicy, multifacetted, dense and complex. Lively interaction of natural sweetness and acidity with a lasting mineral finish.
Markus Hüls belongs to a new generation of vintners which turn traditional ideas of the Mosel wine fundamentally upside down. The young winemaker puts his winery, stating in part from the parent winery, consistently successful and pioneering new course.
Modern management techniques in the vineyard work is just as important for him as a traditional wine maturation stylistic. Moldy Moselle romanticism you'll search in vain at Markus Hüls. Quite the contrary - with respect for nature, region and tradition the young winemaker incomparably creates his very own and modern style of Moselle wine. Fine fruity, mineralic wines made with an extra large dose of passion and enthusiasm.
