Item Description

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.

Weingut Ansgar Clüsserath EstateSince its founding in 1670, Weingut Ansgar Clüsserath in Tritteheim on the Mosel has been owned and operated by the family.

Today, Eva Clüsserath-Wittmann is following in the footsteps of her father, Ansgar. Together they manage the estate. After completing her oenological studies at the viticultural school in Geisenheim/Rheingau in 2001, she worked simultaneously at the estate and at the Pfalz regional branch of the VDP (Prädikat Wine Estates) before deciding to devote all of her energy to the estate in Trittenheim. Like her husband, Philip Wittmann of Weingut Wittmann in Westhofen/Rheinhessen, she is a member of Germany's new generation of wine-growers who are committed to traditional, ecologically sound viticultural practices as well as forward-looking methods. Both in the vineyard and in the cellar she uses her personal style to bring forth the special characteristics of the Mosel's unique cultural landscape. Her wines express the typicality of the soils and steep sites with great finesse and elegance.

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

"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."
