Schäf Spätlese 2018
A Wine That
comes from a tiny parcel on the steep slopes of the Mullay-Hofberg hill side. Thorsten loves to separate his grapes to the smallest variation of ripeness. Here he takes late harvest grapes that naturally ferment until they are almost dry. The sweetness balanced with a fantastic signature Mosel acidity is what dreams are made of.

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.
