Pale straw yellow in colour. The bouquet shows aromatics are persistent and intense, bringing charm of lemon, citrus, green apple candy and floral notes. The palate is remarkable with finesse and elegance. A gentle with nice sweet-tartness of lemon segments… like the little micro tear drops of a lemon’s flesh that combine to make the lemon whole. Well crafted and vibrant. A bone dry Riesling that is lengthy and persistent, with a naturalness that is clean and precise.

Famed Douro producer Dirk Neepoort, whose son Daniel lived with the Kettern family in Piesport for four vintages, followed now by his brother Marco. Together they have a project called Fio, making “Natural Wines” that challenge the old order and which we are now bringing in for the first time. The estate was founded in the 1950’s by Lothar, but son Philipp has been in charge since 2009. To describe him as iconoclastic is an understatement. He has converted the estate to something approaching organic viticulture, while pushing the envelope with Fio and its low-sulphur wines. He has also converted most of his production to dry and off-dry wines, while maintaining the noble tradition of classically sweet Mosels to the manner born. In short, he offers us something of everything – bone-tingling, electric Mosel classics, modern dry wines and cutting-edge natural wines.
