Trittenheim’s finest individual vineyard site, Apotheke, lies on the right bank of the Mosel, opposite the village of Trittenheim. Although Apotheke literally means pharmacy, the vineyard’s name does not refer to medicinal/healthful properties of its wines, but rather derives from a foundation established by the Abtsberg” Abbey of Trier. It numbers among the top sites on the Mosel, not least due to its extreme slope of up to 78 percent . The southwest-facing hillside benefits from direct solar radiation well into late evening, a lengthy time during which the slate soils store heat - warmth that lengthens the ripening period. Weathered slate slopes with subterranean water veins ensure an optimal supply of nutrients and enable the vines to develop deep roots. Single-stake training is practiced in the family’s oldest parcels in this site planted with 60- to 80-year-old vines. The grapes yield wines that have great aging potential and reflect complex minerality. In their youth, the wines show finesse; as they mature, rich fruitiness reminiscent of apricot and peach.

5/5 stars
Ripe mango and peach notes are dominate in this juicy, easy-drinking Riesling. Medium sweet in style, it's balanced by zesty lime acidity and a hint of minerality on the finish.
