The south-faxing steep slopes, with inclines of up to 60°, are located at 180 m above sea level. The steep slopes have grey, weathered Devon slate soils with a high proportion of fine earth, a relatively heavy soil given the Moselle conditions. The results of these conditions create full-bodied, spicy and aromatic wines with an unbelievable ageing potential. Other characteristics are distinctive peach aromas with a trace of wild herbs, fine earthy components and a great deal of elegance.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Josephshofer Riesling Spatlese starts with ripe and tropical fruit flavors on the nose displaying ripe peach, bananas and lychees. Bottled with 8% alcohol and 69 grams of residual sugar, this is a very sweet, intense, elegant and slightly mineral-scented wine with a nice, almost soft acidity (8.1 grams) and a lingering salty finish.

Stephan Reinhardt, February 2015
