Rurale 2018


A Wine That

is fundamentally different to the great still wines of the valley. Thorsten has always had a love for making sparkling and the 'Rurale' is a combining the freshness of a PetNat with the texture and complexity of traditionally made Sekt. The aging with the lees combined with the striking acidity of the Riesling grapes makes this an exciting option for anyone looking for Sparkling Extravaganza. It's like Mozart meets Metallica..

Where and How?

The grapes come from the single vineyard 'Mullay-Hofberg' - a vineyard that has been in the hands of the Melsheimer family for the past centuries. Pure grey slate soils that give Riesling from the Mosel its unique flavour. Grapes are hand-harvested on the steep slopes and then vinified in large 'Fuder' barrels - a traditional size in the Mosel ever since.

The Winemaker: Thorsten Melsheimer

Thorsten Melsheimer is a curious and meticulous winemaker who crafts some of the most compelling Rieslings from some of the most famed sites in the Mosel. Bit by bit over the years, he has also become intrigued by sparkling wine, making pét-nat as an experiment before it was even known as pét-nat.
This is a guy who makes wine not just for a living, but for fun. It's an endless journey of learning and knowledge, and these bottles will tell you the stories of all the lessons learnt along the way.
