About the Producer: Gebr Ludwig
Gerbr Ludwig vineyards are located in the prestigious Thörnich area along the steeping slopes of the Mosel Valley overlooking the river. The estate was founded in 1628 and has since been a family owned and run. In 2005, brothers Meike and Thomas took over the management of the company, bringing a fresh approach, marrying tradition with modern techniques and innovation. Viticulture is certified environmentally friendly, and treated in accordance with the traditional principle of “as much as necessary, as little as possible.” Their vineyards cover 9ha today, growing 80% Riesling (with some vines old as 100 years in age).
The Mosel River flows from France into Germany where it winds and bends for 150 miles merging into the Rhine on its way to the North Sea. For many it has the most classic Riesling wines in the world. Mosel Rieslings range from bone-dry to sweet and each vineyard area produces a wine with its own distinctive personality, but the primary aromas and taste profile are a pale color, light body and a refreshing, fruity acidity. They also often have the slightest hint of effervescence. For a classic fine wine, they have the added advantage of being enjoyable in their youth.
Riesling is a high quality white grape variety whose traditional home is the wine-making regions of Germany such as the Pfalz or the Mosel. It has a propensity for cooler climates, producing very fine wines of an aromatic nature with high acidity and often the capability to age well. It is a versatile grape and shows well in a wide range of styles from fully dry to lusciously sweet.In addition to its German homeland, fantastic examples can also be found in the Alsace, and further afield in the new world regions of South Australia and New Zealand. It performs especially well in Australia's Clare Valley, where a new world 'classic' style has emerged.
