Tasting notes:
'From a higher, east-facing plot of the Piesporter single vineyard very stony soils with a higher proportion of quartzite, the 2016 Mosel Riesling Falkenberg has a very clear, fresh and delicately slatey nose of white ripe fruits and cold stones. Lush and piquant, with a salty freshness and remarkable finesse, this is a lithe but tensioned dry Riesling bottled with 11% alcohol. The finish is long, pure and salty, absolutely refreshing and highly delicate. Bottled in October 2017, tasted March 2018.' – Wine Advocate, 91/100

Dry – 2.8g/l and 11% Alcohol

About Niepoort:
The Niepoort family has been creating Port Wines since 1842. Dirk Niepoort, fifth generation, is the head of the business after his father, Rolf’s retirement in 2005. Dirk is a pioneer of table wines in Portugal and, as with all Dirk’s projects around the world, his focus is on traditionally made wines that offer elegance while showcasing terroir. Dirk ‘helped transform the region and the way the world thinks about wine’ says Wine & Spirits Magazine about Dirk and his role in the Douro. His wines transcend the extreme heat of the Douro and display great freshness and elegance.
