Markus Molitor Wehlener Klosterberg Spatlese (750ml)
In 1984, at the age of 20, Markus Molitor took over his father’s winery with the goal to produce Mosel Rieslings under the name “Molitor” in the tradition of eight generations. Markus Molitor wines are unmistakably terroir-driven, pure with the ability to age and develop for many years in bottle. Markus Molitor makes it easy for consumers to identify the style of Riesling bu colour coding the capsules; the dry wines have a white cap. The off-dry wines have a grey-green colour like slate. The naturally sweet and botrytis wines have a gold cap.
The Wehlener Klosterberg site is at the heart of the Markus Molitor vineyards. It stretches up the steep slopes around the winery buildings. It is located in a side valley directly opposite Zeltingen, and faces almost due south. Light to medium-heavy stony soils of decomposed slate with a high proportion of iron to produce mineral-flavoured and long-lived wines with delicate, elegant fruit. Apart from Riesling, elegant Pinot Blanc (Weißburgunder) grapes are also grown here.
