Located in western Germany, along the Moselle River, the Moselle wine region is known for producing some of the world's finest Riesling wines. The steep vineyards along the Moselle River are among the most difficult to cultivate in the world, but the unique soil composition and cool climate produce wines of exceptional flavour, acidity and complexity.
Mosel Riesling wines are typically light to medium bodied, with flavors of citrus, green apple and stone fruit. They are known for their high acidity, which gives them a refreshing, spicy character. Mosel Riesling wines can range from dry to sweet, and are often labeled according to their level of sweetness, with the most common levels being Kabinett, Spätlese, Auslese, Beerenauslese, and Trockenbeerenauslese. These wines vary in sweetness, with Kabinett being the driest and Trockenbeerenauslese being the sweetest and most luscious.
The Moselle region also produces other grape varieties, including Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir. The Pinot Noir wines produced in the Moselle region are known for their light to medium body, delicate fruit flavors and earthy undertones.
