Markus Molitor Haus Klosterberg Riesling Trocken

In 1984, at the tender age of 20, Markus Molitor took over his father’s winery with a clear aim: to produce Mosel Rieslings under the name “Molitor” in the tradition of eight generations and in the same quality that made the region world-famous 100 years ago, terroir-specific, unmistakable and extremely storable. The winery is based at the center of the Wehlener Klosterberg site and cultivates vineyards in 15 different sites, each of which is unique in its own way and only a “Molitor terroir” for this reason.
Light to medium-heavy stony soils of decomposed slate with a high proportion of iron to produce mineral-flavoured and long-lived wines with delicate, elegant fruit.

At Markus Molitor the bottles are colour coded according to the taste category of the wine: the dry wines have a white cap; the off-dry wines have a grey-green colour like slate. The naturally sweet and botrytis wines have a gold cap.
