2012 Staatliche Weinbau. Trier Künstleredition Cuvée Feinherb

Mosel Cuvée with Ripe Pear, Grapefruit, and Nutty Tones

This ​cuvée is a mix of the rare Mosel varietals auxerrois, weissburgunder, and grauburgunder. Because of that, the character of this wine is as expressive as its inspired label giving the wine its name. “Künstler” literally means “artist” to credit the German painter Mario Diaz Saurez living in Trier. He painted his work themed “Landscapes Picture in Picture” in acrylic on canvas which the Staatliche Weinbaudomäne Trier used for this eye catching label. The wine is clear pale gold with complex minerality and profound fruit on the nose. It presents clean tones of fruit including ripe pear and grapefruit balanced by nutty and brioche tones in its medium full body. A very special wine worthy of immense enjoyment and discussion.
