The Grand Cru vineyard site of Leiwen Laurentiuslay is quite unique. Dark slate soils on a steep dish shaped vineyard with a seriously warm microclimate produce early ripening grapes with high sugar content on a regular basis. These conditions combine to produce grapes ideally suited for the production of a dry style Mosel Riesling. GG stands for Grosses Gewäachs, a term many hiqh quality producers use to identify their dry style offerings. This is a unique wine from a fantastic site in the Mosel made in very limited quantities.
338 cases produced, 50 cases imported.
