NOTES FROM TASTING 18th July 2014
PRESTIGE WINES FROM THE MOSEL
PRESENTED BY CLIFF TROTT
 
I missed this one, but from the feedback received, it was an excellent and informative evening.  Cliff's interest in German wines started at the tender age of 15.  Since then he has visited the Mosel valley many times to taste the wines and has forged friendships with many of the top vintners there such as Conrad Bartz and Phillips-Eckstein.
 
At the time of tasting, these wines were not available to purchase in the UK, but I believe Cliff is setting up a Company to import and distribute some of these wines.
 
The Wines presented were:
 
White Wines
 
Riesling Kabinett Trocken 11% - super example of a really dry Riesling
 
2013 Graacher Domprobst, Riesling Kabinett Trocken 12.5% - Phillips-Eckstein
 
2012 Trabener Krautenhaus Riesling-Hochewachs 11.5% - Conrad Bartz
 
2013 Wolfer Goldgrube Riesling Spatlese, Alte Reben 11% - Conrad Bartz
 
 
Red Wines
 
 
2013 Spatburgunder Halbtrocken 12.5% - Conrad Bartz
 
2013 Spatburgunder Trocken 13.5% - Phillips-Eckstein
 
Dornfelder Trocken 12.5% - Conrad Bartz
 
2007 Dornfelder Halbtrocken 12.5%
