Andreas von Canal is the grandson of the last Freiherr von Heddesdorff. His family has grown Riesling in Winningen since 1454, on steep, terraced vineyards near the confluence of the Mosel and the Rhine, just upriver from Koblenz.
The spectacular, steep terraced sites of Freiherren von Heddesdorff seem to rise vertically from the river Mosel. The old vines are rooted in rocky soil over a deep bed of slate. This tiny estate produces aromatic wines with weight, traditionally fermented in large oak barrels.
This is a beautiful Riesling with a lot of energy. A new release, it’s an off-dry Riesling that unloads elegant flavors of grilled pineapple, stone fruit, apple pie and fresh ginger with some citrus fruit and Asian pear notes that linger. It’s a little dry, a little creamy with plenty of elegance, a great example of what Mosel Riesling can be.
If you’re a fan of German Riesling, you’ll want a few bottles of this in your wine fridge. A tremendous example of what Mosel Riesling is at its best.
