This is a gorgeous wine from one of the most famed regions for Riesling in the world, the Mosel valley.

 

Made by 13th-generation J.J. Karp, this is an off-dry Riesling that captures the essence of the estate's history and respect for biodiversity and terroir. Flavours of apple, citrus apricot and blossom with honey notes, make this a really charming and delicious wine.

 

The tradition of carp fishing in the Mosel is a well-established one with records dating to the 17th century of the Karp family doing just this while also owning vineyard land in the same region.

The winery is now run in large part by Jobst-Julius Karp who honed his winemaking skills in Australia, South Africa, California and New Zealand before returning to the Mosel.

These are really friendly wines; this, his very personal
