Hansen-Lauer Bernkasteler Graben Riesling Spätlese was grown on grey devonian slate and comes from a vineyard overlooking the picturesque town of Bernkastel-Kues located in a bend of the Middle Mosel. The wine shows everything that makes a classic Mosel Riesling, minerality, acidity and fruit nicely balanced.
The ageing potential of this wine is 15 years.
The grapes were hand-picked at the end of October. The fermentation took two months at low temperatures to preserve some residual sugar. The young wine was left sitting on the fine lees for another three months afterwards giving a rounder balance.
Bottling occured seven months after harvest.
This is a full-grown wine which doesn't need any accompanying dish, but if you are looking for one try to pair it with Roquefort cheese (blue cheese), foie gras or desert like fruit cake.
The Hansen-Lauer Estate
Thomas Hansen is the third in the generation of the Hansen family to produce top quality wines at Weingut Hansen-Lauer in Bernkastel-Kues, overlooking the picturesque Mosel River.
Hansen-Lauer's two hectares of vines are situated amid the Germany's finest growing region which produces many of the best and costliest white wines in the world. Bernkastel-Kues, a picturesque village and tourist mecca overlooking the Mosel River, has long been the home of the finest Rieslings in Germany. Home of Germany's famed Wine Symposium, Bernkastel is a community famed for its celebration of winemaking and good living.
Weingut Hansen-Lauer, with its perfect blend of soil and climate, produces white wines exclusively of the Riesling grape, carefully crafted by master winemaker Thomas Hansen. His expertise assures exquisite wines for the most discriminating wine lover.
The history of the winery goes back more than 400 years. Its 2 hectares of vines are situated around the medieval town of Bernkastel. 90% of the vineyards are planted with Riesling, the leading grape-variety of the Mosel-river. 10% is Spätburgunder, also known as Pinot Noir. Riesling is the wine of the Moselle. This wine is light, elegant and very fine. The most fascinating thing about Riesling is its great diversity of taste. Riesling can taste like a vineyard peach, apple, grapefruit, rose blossom, honey or cut green grass. This list is by no means exhaustive. Just taste it and use your own fantasy and imagination to describe your impressions of smell.
