Monchhof Estate Riesling
he Mönchhof estate is mentioned first as belonging of the Cistercian abbey of Himmerod in the Eifel in 1177. After the Secularisation under Napoleon the family Eymael bought the estate on an auction in Paris in 1804 from the French state. The Estate Riesling is a typical elegant Mosel Riesling with flavours of citrus and peach in combination with a nice minerality. The fresh and elegant acidity shows a perfect balance to the sweetness. This wine was grown in the vineyards around Ürzig at steep slopes. The slate soil charges the sun heat during the day and passes it to the vine during the night-time. The grapes are hand-picked and afterwards directly pressed after the arrival at the estate. This wine suits perfectly as companion for seafood and also spicy dishes that are balanced perfectly due to the sweetness. Furthermore it is a nice aperitif on the terrace.
