'The 2017 Piesporter Falkenberg Mosel Riesling Trocken is crystalline, clear, pure and fresh on the deep, ascetic and slate-dominated nose with its crushed/dusty stone and yeasty-tinted white fruit notes. Round and lush on the textured palate, this is a just-ripe but elegant, balanced and refined dry Riesling with 11% alcohol. It has fine bones and delicately salty acidity that carries it to a pleasant, stimulatingly refreshing finish. The 2017 Falkenberg (from a stony slate terroir with a high portion of quartzite) is another excellent effort from the Niepoort and Kettern families. It is dense and even concentrated on the aftertaste. Very promising, but it's a great drinking pleasure even today.' – Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, 92/100

'Dry and deliberate, however also bright and precise. After spending over a year on the lees in 1000 litre Mosel fuder, Falkenberg delivers incredible freshness and elegance, with stunning structure and a long finish.' – Winemaker

Producer information Dirk Niepoort is a fifth generation winemaker and a pioneer of table wines in Portugal. His long-standing passion for Mosel wines and Riesling took him to Mosel where he met winemaker, Philip Kettern, of Lothar Kettern. These two men, together with Dirk's eldest son, Daniel, formed a collaboration which later became known as Fio Wines. Their vineyards lie in the western Mosel village of Piesport. With blue, Devonian slopes and a 30-70% south facing gradient, this amphitheatre is one of the Mosel's great terroirs.
