Weingut Furst, Elbling 2020
About the Wine: This bottle is made in the Trocken style, which means that it is a dry wine. When you sip this wine you will pucker with a crisp palate of citrus, pear, melon, honey, and slate-like minerals! This is Germany's oldest grape and is traceable to imperial Roman times. It was Germany's most cultivated variety until the early 20th century. Elbling is the German answer to Muscadet: feather-light, low alcohol, dry, mineral, and quenching. About the Producer: The Fürst family has grown grapes and other crops at their estate in the Sauer Valley, the southernmost part of the Mosel River, since the 13th century, and Michael is the third generation to make wine under the family name. He tends 12 hectares of Elbling, 70% of which are old vines, 25% between 10-20 years old, and 5% young. His total Elbling production is under 10,000 cases and the quality is high, vintage after vintage.
