This outstanding dry Riesling captures the intense lemon-lime and hint of honey that make great Riesling so, well, great. The ageing potential of this wine is also exceptional but it drinks so beautifully now that it will require significant willpower to keep it. 

The village of Trittenheim is home to the great Apotheke Vineyard, one of the best sites on the Mosel; which is the world's greatest Riesling region.  

The name Apothem literally means pharmacy, the vineyard?s name comes from the Abtsberg Abbey in the nearby city of Trier. 

Stein means stone and this dry Riesling is made from a south west facing vineyard site planted on slate slopes with each vine single staked and with average vine age of 60 to 80 years of age. The grapes yield wines with great aging potential and complex minerality. All  grapes are hand picked, gently pressed and fermented with indigenous yeasts in German fuder barrels where the wine is left to receive the smooth, complex flavour benefits of extended lees ageing.
