The wine "Lay" 2018 grew in an old slate site sloping to the south. Grey and blue slate cover the soil, which warms up quickly and dries quickly after rain. The vines are 40 year old Riesling vines, which are densely planted and therefore the roots have to penetrate deep into the soil and carry the required water upwards with great energy. The juice fermented slowly and gradually turned into wine that can rest on the yeast for a long time. As always, the wine wandered around the cellar between old oak barrels and stainless steel, was decanted twice to completely remove the yeast and clarify the wine. The wine has a great density, radiates a majestic calm and is stimulatingly fresh and has a great drinking flow.

This wine should be enjoyed with devotion in a large Zalto or Riedel glass. It has many "tongues" and a great willingness to tell stories about the terroir and the 2018 vintage. It is a "naked" wine, without any additives, without sulphur and filtration, and after opening, when the air is allowed to touch it, a wealth of delicate aromas emerge from the glass in a thoughtful manner, swinging back and forth between fruits and herbs. In this way, one can really deepen a wine meditation and understand that the Riesling wines of Moselle and Rhine were counted among the most expensive and popular wines in the world 120 years ago. Because this wine is "old-fashioned" in a positive and impressive way.

This is how the wines will have tasted back then, when Riesling wines from Germany were an integral part of the menu at every Nobel Prize gala dinner.
