The Rise of Lothar-Kettern Riesling
 
 
Piesport is one of the most auspicious wine towns on the Mosel that has been famous for its fruits since Roman times. Indeed, its best vineyard, the grand cru, Goldtröpfchen appropriately means, “little drop of gold,” reflecting the lush, minerally wines that are concentrated yet float on the palate.
 
Philip Kettern is a young talented winemaker quickly turning heads with both his dry and fruity wines. He focuses on low yielding older vines on steep slopes doing everything by hand. In the winery, he spontaneous yeasts and provides a long elevage for longevity and complexity. Philip is one of the last to bottle on the Mosel and it is a wondrous delight to see his wines evolve in the glass and in the bottle.
 
The symbol on the label is from a large stone carving, probably several hundred years old, that was recently found in the vineyard: the cross for faith in the renaissance of Riesling, the heart for the labor of love working the steep vineyards and the anchor for hope the hard work will bear fruit.
 
These wines are an Acker exclusive in the US!
