Bastgen Berncastel-Cueser Weisenstein Riesling Spatlese Trocken 2020

Bastgen Berncastel-Cueser Weisenstein Riesling Spatlese Trocken is made from 100 percent Riesling.

Bright, clean, fresh and zesty. Grapefruit like flavors. Fruity aromas and a nice minerality, typical of the Riesling grape grown on blue slate soil. Round, rich and a very long finish. The grapes for this wine are vigorously selected. Botrytis is not tolerated. At harvest the grapes are fully ripened, have a golden color, and a soft tartness. After a long spontaneous fermentation in a traditional 1000L barrel, the wine just reaches the dry stage. This gives the wine a creamy structure that interplays with ripe yellow and exotic fruit aromas.

Bastgen Monterosa Satin Noir 2016

Bastgen Monterosa Satin Noir is made from 90% Satin Noir, 10% Cabernet Jura.

The color is a deep black red. The nose offers spicy aromas, blackberry, balsamic and forest hints. The tannins are pronounced in the beginning, which gives a certain grip to the wine, continuing on full flavors and ending surprisingly soft.

Usually the grapes from this vineyard are exclusively used for Rosé production. The Monterosa was one of Armin's red wine experiments. He is an avid pizza baker and wanted to make a wine that would entertain his guest with a slice of freshly baked Italian style pizza. Said and done, about 2 years later family and friends were indulging on this great combination... The name of the wine is a homage to Armin's love to Italy. Monterosa is the Italian translation of the German vineyard name Rosenberg (hill of roses).

Monterosa is a new "wild red wine" - an experimental cuvee of new fungi-resistant grape varieties from the Jura region to face coming climate changes. The cuvee is produced from 90% Satin Noir (a crossing from Cabernet Sauvignon) and 10% Cabernet Jura.

The vines were planted 10 years ago in the village of Osann, a steep vineyard with red slate soil - this soil is rare in the Mosel region. No chemicals are used in the vineyards.

Pair with Pizza and Italian cuisine.

Review:

"Slightly more expensive, the 2016 Bastgen Kestener Paulinshofberg Riesling Spätlese is another beautiful wine from this estate. Clean, crisp notes of white peach, lime pith, crushed mint, and beautiful, building minerality all give way to a medium-bodied Spätlese that has rocking purity of fruit, a seamless texture, and bright, integrated acidity that shines on the finish."
