Review:

"From vines planted in 1990 and brought up all in stainless steel, the 2015 Estate Riesling from this estate is certainly noteworthy as well as a fabulous value. Beautiful notes of crushed rocks, petrol, and exotic citrus characteristics all flow to a medium-bodied, balanced Riesling that stays clean and dry through the finish. I love its balance, it has terrific purity, and it’s going to be incredibly versatile on the dinner table."

Winery: Dr. Leimbrock

Dr. Leimbrock has been family-owned for more than 250 years and looks back on a long tradition of producing fine wines. The main focus of our wines are the dry and semi-dry Rieslings. Only when nature allows – which in recent years has increasingly only been possible through the selective picking of the grapes – resulting in the delicate and aromatic Spätlese and Auslese wines. The excellent Leimbrock wines have received both national and international awards. Our wines are only harvested from our own vineyards, only fermented in our own cellars and bottled at our own winery Date Founded: 1750

Owner: Ulrike Oeffling (Leimbrock) Winery Philosophy: Tradition meets Care The Dr. Leimbrock – C. Schmidt winery has been family-owned for more than 250 years and looks back on a long tradition of producing fine wines. The current vineyard of Dr. Leimbrock – C. Schmidt was founded in 1967 by Friedhelm Leimbrock and Lore Leimbrock nee Schmidt from the companies of their forefathers Friedrich Herrmann, Dr. Wilhelm Leimbrock and Conrad Schmidt. Winery/Vineyards Winery Acreage: 22 acres Winery Production: 7,500 cases / 9L cases Varietals Produced: Riesling, Weißer Burgunder, Kerner Winemaker: Dr. Friedhelm Leimbrock We cultivate our Riesling on 8.5 hectares in the best locations in Veldenz, Mülheim, Brauneberg, Bernkastel and Graach.

The soils of our vineyards originate from the ‘Devon’ soil and are composed of weathered slate. 60% of the hills of our vineyard are aptly named – their slopes are 30-80% steep! Ideal locations for Riesling where each area possesses an unmistakable character. Whether Mülheimer Sonnenlay, Veldenzer Bitsch, Brauneberger Juffer, Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, or the Bernkasteler Badstube, we have some of the best locations on the Mosel. The vineyard is led by Mrs. Ulrike Oeffling. The vines are cultivated in a natural way. We follow guidelines for fertilization, planting and soil protection that are the best for the environment.

The grapes are carefully pressed, the must is fermented in a naturally cooled cellar and the wine is finished in traditional style. Love of the vines, the soil and the wine as well as the certitude of living in one of the most beautiful wine regions is our passion. It is our belief that we can improve our lifestyle through moderate enjoyment of wine. – Lore Leimbrock nee Schmidt, Ulrike Oeffling nee Leimbrock, Rolf-Bernd Leimbrock and Dr. Friedhelm Leimbrock.
