NECTO Riesling 2011

At the Mosel we have many small parcels of fruit (many small vineyard blocks). The advantages of having varying vineyard sites at the Mosel are differing altitudes, orientations, soil structures, vine ages and rootstocks. This leads to lots of interesting ingredients when making a wine….a touch of primary fruit from there, some lively acidity from up there and some palate weight from over there.

That is how we make our new Riesling range – NECTO (in Latin – to connect/bind).

NECTO is produced in three styles to show off the diversity of riesling from the Mosel:

NECTO 1: trocken (dry)

NECTO 2: feinherb (medium-dry)

NECTO 3: edelsüss (Botrytis sweet – dessert-style)

Below are a few images depicting the production of NECTO 2011:
