"I Love Mosel!" And you will too! Andreas Bender makes this wine for the locals, and when you try this wine, you will taste Mosel. It is off-dry but not blousy with tropical and lime fruit framed by mouthwatering, crushing freshness. Loads of lively acidity bring this wine together, putting some structure to it. The finish is long with honeyed fruit and loads of freshness right to the end. Andreas made this wine from a single parcel of red slate in the Premier Cru vineyard Schweicher Annaberg site. Hand-harvested and spontaneously fermented in large old oak barrels before a temperature-controlled ferment, resting on lees in stainless steel tanks for three months.

Andreas Bender

Andreas grew up roaming the vineyards of the Mosel wherehis family were grafting vines. It is no surprise he beganmaking wine when he was 13! His wine experiences include time in the U.S., France, Italy and at Geisenheim University as a scholar inoenology and viticulture. Today he manages 35 hectares of his own vineyards. His grapes are picked and hand-sorted, to ensure the highest quality of juice. The unconventional use of retired oak barrels can be a bit hit ormiss, but for Andreas, it has been a hit. Andreas'contemporary attitude comes through in the Bender labeldesign and accessible, fun wines. He takes Pfalz andMosel's traditional grapes, cool climate, and slate soils and uses them to create impeccably balanced wines.
