Vintage: 2022
Region: Lower Mosel, Germany
Viticulture: Organic
Grape varieties: 100% Riesling

Stein Blauschiefer Riesling Trocken offers a beautiful nose of pear, white peach, and lots of minerality. Playful and light-footed, mouth-watering, and zesty. Essentially rocks pulverized into liquid form with brisk and beautiful acidity. For fans of complex, mineral-driven white wines like Sancerre, Chablis, and Santorini. This bottling is sourced from old vines (the average age is 60, some are ungrafted and 75+ years old) and drinks way above its price point. Hand-harvested, fermented in mostly old (50-100 years old) 1000L Mosel foudres with some vintages also employing a bit of stainless steel. Unfined, lightly filtered, minimal sulfur added, at least 3 months on the lees (some vintages closer to 12 months.)

About Stein

Ulli (and now his young protégé Philip Lardot) farms meaningful parcels of land that have a few important things in common: They are not easy to work. They are commercially unknown and therefore (most likely) barely financially viable. Finally, and most importantly: Ulli has to love them. Stein is more than a winemaker – he is a passionate advocate for the traditional, steep, slate vineyards of the Mosel. Winemaking with Ulli is refreshingly light on “style,” on some idea projected into the vineyards, and more about what the vineyards say to him. Certainly, there is a focus on wines that are dry; lightness and zip are more important than gobs of fruit. Cut is more important than size. One last note of importance, due to his belief in the importance of old vines the family never grafted to phylloxera-resistant rootstock in the 70s when this practice was the norm. So Ulli now has a profound collection of ungrafted vines, farming around 10% of the ungrafted vines in all of Germany. In 2016 the young Philip Lardot moved to the Mosel and was taken in by Ulli. Philip found a mentor and a deep connection to the Mosel in Ulli Stein; meanwhile, Ulli found just the right person to carry the torch at this curious estate.
