Description

Oberwesel is located in the middle of the romantic world cultural heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley. Medieval Oberwesel stands for the origin of Riesling culture on the Rhine and still lives it today. Winemaking has been a tradition in the Lanius family for over 250 years. We produce racy and elegant Rieslings, fruity and mineral with high aging potential.

This wine comes from our best vineyard, the Oberwesel Oelsberg. In steep slopes with up to 75% incline, the vines grow here directly byside the Rhine. The Oelsberg is characterized by the interplay of slate, loess clay and red sandstone. Together with a microclimate predestined for Riesling, this gives the wine a distinctive  independence. The Riesling from the Oelsberg is characterized by a great fragrance and exuberant character. At the same time it is less mineral but rather soft and opulent. In the foreground are an exotic fruit aromas and spicy notes.

Vintage description 2000

Our second harvest in Oelsberg and it rained! The wine year 2000 was characterized by rain, rain and more rain. The spring and budding were quite normal as in the average wine years. Then, on 26.05.2000, the rain started. And it rained every day until the harvest was over. Not continuously the whole day, but always such heavy showers, that everything was wet through and through. It was very difficult to find a time window to do the most important work without rain. But in the end we were rewarded with this Spätlese and a great Trockenbeerenauslese, which caused a lot of international attention.
