Stein Riesling Trocken "Palmberg" 2014

Ulli Stein is a passionate advocate for the traditional, steep, slate vineyards of the Mosel. In 2010 Ulli published a manifesto warning of the threats to the region’s 2000-year-old viticultural tradition. He has an avid following in Europe and his wines have been a staple of Restaurant NOMA's wine program since it's inception.

 

There are dry Rieslings and then there are DRY Rieslings, this should be called Uber Trocken!  This is bone dry and the bones have turned into dust... that dry. Lot's of mineral cut here and a slight touch of that beach ball petrol thing going on.  Ulli didn't make this wine in 2015 so this is the last Trocken Palmberg we will see for a while.

Our wines are often more subtle and earthy than the fruit-bombs that you find on most supermarket shelves but we believe that once you unlock their charms you will be hooked for life. And since these Old World wines were made on smaller vineyards that have existed for generations they also offer quite a great bang for the buck. There are some amazing New World wines out there but they tend to cost a great deal more than we want to charge our customers. We want to be the wine portal for people of all ages and incomes who are new to wine and want to explore without breaking the bank.
