While unfettered pleasure is the reflex response elicited by classic Mosel
Riesling, the often overt power and disorienting range of Heymann-Löwenstein
tends to be more thought-provoking. Reinhard Löwenstein views his craft as a
creative interplay between climate, soil, vine and grower, culminating in wines
that are singular, authentic and complex. The wines he makes with daughter Sarah
never fall short on that count.
The soft slate in Röttgen has a yellowish-brown to reddish-brown colour that
indicates a high content of iron oxide. The wines from this vineyard are
characterized by luxuriant fruit aromas that are always reminiscent of white
peaches and ripe melons, with notes of flint and coffee.
