Loewen Leiwener Maximin Klosterlay Riesling Erste Lage Trocken
Vineyard: Maximin Klosterlay
Soil: Blue Slate
Production: Spontaneous fermentation on old Mosel fuder with lees contact until bottling in late summer.
In medieval times the Benedictine abbey St. Maximin was the leading winery along the Mosel. One of the best sites of the abbey was the Maximin Klosterlay. Eventually during the secularization under Napoleon the property was sold and one of our ancestors was able to buy vineyards in the Maximiner Klosterlay. Upon this blue slate soil our winery was founded
The sun directly faces the vineyard and a Mosel lock provides a huge water area directly at the bottom of the Maximin Klosterlay. The wines show an enormous length paired with a mineral structure and elegant aromas.
