The grapes for this delicious Riesling come from the prized area of Ürziger Würztgarten, in the middle Mosel above the village of Ürzig. Vinified and aged entirely in stainless steel vats, and intentionally released after a minimum of one year in the bottle, it displays classic Mosel mineral and lime notes throughout with bright, crisp acidity and just enough residual sugar to soften the edges.

Sourced from vineyards in and around Urziger Wurzgarten the grapes for this wine come from excellent vineyard sites. Empress Josephine's Riesling was picked at Spatlese levels, giving the wine a richer mouthfeel, delicious tropical and stone fruit notes, and refreshing acidity on the finish.

Napoleon's wife, the Empress Josephine, visited Germany in the early 1800s and was very impressed with the Rieslings from the area. In turn, German Rieslings became quite fashionable among wine drinkers and were the top flight wines on restaurant lists. This wine is an homage to Empress Josephine's love of German Riesling. Rich mouthfeel with delicious tropical and stone fruit notes. Refreshing acidity on the finish. Try with standard fare or Asian cuisine for a delicious pairing.
