"Rich-tasting, with lots of plushness and vibrancy to the ripe peach, apricot and baked apple flavors. Very minerally on the finish. Drink now through 2025. 1,500 cases made. -KM" 90 Points - Wine Sectator
"Pale but intense lemon colour. Ripe full aromas of peach, apricot and citrus - suggestion of generosity already, almost a little exotic. Smells so rich but also has cleanness about it, just a hint of minerality that is almost but not quite masked by the pure and concentrated fruit. On the palate, fills the mouth but has a fine core of acidity giving it great shape and length. Mouthwatering clementine, lemon and grapefruit flavours leave the mouth refreshed. Just a baby but well balanced, the feinherb sweetness offset by clear-cut acidity and the minerality that emerges on the finish. Noticeable concentration, too.

"On a hillside above the Saarfeils lies the Wiltingen Schlangengraben (snake pit) vineyard. While snakes aren't found there, and it technically isn't a pit, there is a small canyon tilting towards our 9ha contiguous vineyard parcel. The vineyard was planted in the 1920s, some of the vines planted then remain today...As the Saar is famous for its steely, crisp, and elegant wines this vineyard is set aside for refreshing and light, off-dry Kabinett wines simply assigned the moniker 'Wiltinger Alte Reben'." -Winery
"Viticulture has been present on the Mosel since the ancient Romans brought cultivated grapevines here two millennia ago. The region's unique geologic and climatic conditions are the basis for growing great Riesling along the Mosel its tributaries, the Saar and Ruwer. The cool continental climate, with some Atlantic influence, its slate soil and the steeply-hilled topography are all nature's gifts both for winemakers and wine aficionados."
"Our town of Leiwen, picturesquely surrounded by vineyards as if from an 18th century landscape painting has in the last few decades taken on a new dynamism. With 450 hectares (approximately 1,112 acres) of vines, Leiwen is one of the largest wine villages in the Mosel region." -Winery
