The grapes used for the J.W. Huesgen Alte Reben Riesling Trocken make this white wine something...
The grapes used for the J.W. Huesgen Alte Reben Riesling Trocken make this white wine something very special, because they come from 60-year-old root-genuine vines. They grow on slate soils in the single vineyard Enkircher Steffensberg and the soil is also responsible for the intense and elegant character of this top Riesling. A colourful melange of light yellow and green makes the wine a feast for the eyes already in the glass, while the wonderful, slightly spicy fragrance spoils the nose. Aromas of yellow fruits round off the first impression perfectly. On the palate, the J.W. Huesgen Alte Reben Riesling Trocken impresses above all with its opulent structure, which the white wine owes to its ageing in wooden barrels. Incidentally, this great Riesling is reminiscent of Lotte Huesgen, a strong woman who continued the tradition of the winery after the Second World War. Beyond that, however, it is the root-genuine vines in particular that make the white wine a Riesling jewel - because rootless means that the entire vine, from root to grape, comes from the same plant. This is a rarity today, as about 90 percent of vines are not rootless. Therefore, you should definitely enjoy the J.W. Huesgen Alte Reben Riesling Trocken neat. If you want to serve the white wine with food, the best combination is with cheese or poultry.

J.W. Huesgen – Riesling specialist from the Mosel

The cultivation and production of excellent wines has been in the Huesgen family's blood for centuries. Since 1735, Riesling wines with character have been produced in Traben-Trarbach on the Mosel. The family-owned winery is now in its eighth generation and combines innovation in the wine cellar and sustainable viticulture with tradition. Situated directly at the beginning of the wine route, the conditions were good from the very beginning to be successful. In the 19th century, Traben-Trarbach developed into the second-largest wine-trading city in the world after Bordeaux and the Mosel is the oldest wine-growing region in Germany – the best conditions for creating unique wines even today. These wines benefit from the fact that the region offers ideal conditions, especially for the Riesling grape variety. The result: J.W. Huesgen's wines are fruity and elegant, with beautiful acidity and minerality.

First-class locations on the Mosel deliver first-class J.W. Huesgen wines

The wines owe their character to the steep slopes on the Mosel – Enkircher Steffensberg and Trabener Würzgarten – which face south and southwest respectively and allow a long ripening time. The slaty soils of these locations supply the vines, some of which are over 60 years old, with minerals and give them their very unique flavour. In the Prussian Wine Classification of 1886, the Enkircher Steffensberg and Trabener Würzgarten locations were already given the highest classification. The high quality is transported from the vineyard to the wine cellar, where the optimally ripened, hand-picked grapes are carefully and with a lot of experience processed into excellent Riesling wines, which also have a high maturation potential. The fascinating mixture of tradition and modernity is also reflected in the individual J.W. Huesgen wines, as each of them reminds of strong women who have always shaped the history of the family-owned winery.

Women of strong character as namesakes for expressive J.W. Huesgen wines

One of these women is Maria Angelika Huesgen. After the death of her husband in 1782 she took over the management of the winery – and as she did this not only very skilfully but also extremely charmingly, she still bears the nickname "Grand Dame" to this day. A Grand Dame is also the Riesling Méthode Traditionelle, which reminds us of her with its fine perlage and elegance. Just as fine and with pleasant minerality is the Schiefer Riesling Trocken. The Mosel white wine is dedicated to Louise Christine Huesgen, who built a new house and wine cellar with her husband directly on the banks of the Mosel in the 19th century. Many decades later, Lotte Huesgen faced the great challenge of continuing the winery after the Second World War as a widow and single mother. A strong woman, who has been commemorated with a powerful wine, because the opulent Alte Reben Riesling Trocken is particularly expressive and intense in taste. The grapes for this opulent first-class Riesling by J.W. Huesgen come from vines that are over 60 years old. Not only this wine, but all three creations of the J.W. Huesgen collection are little gems from the Mosel, which provide the wine lover with delightful moments.
