Konstantin Weiser and Alexandra Künstler run their winery in Traben-Trarbach, which is only four hectares large, organically. Together with Clemens Busch, they are the spearhead in this field. A large part of the steep slopes is in single-pole cultivation and thus very time-consuming to work. Blue slate forms the subsoil in the vineyards in Trarbach and Enkirch. Grape quality is the top priority for the two. They attach importance to moderate Oechsle values and a crisp acid structure. The fermentation is 100 percent spontaneous. The dry qualities are traditionally vinified in barrels. Inox also comes into play with the residually sweet and noble sweet wines. Controlled? Oxidation plays a major role during the vinification process in order to bring out the minerality. The wines should never be fruit-oriented. The ageing on the lees is untypically long for the region. This has a noticeably positive effect on the mouthfeel.
The selection in the vineyard is ultimately decisive. Above all, sensory is clearly separated here. Only yellow grapes are used for the Gaispfad. This is followed by a maceration period of 12 to 24 hours, depending on the vintage, to concentrate the phenols.


Sparkling straw yellow, delicate green reflections.


The nose promises a cool slate tone and spice from the spontaneous fermentation. Lemon and tangerine dominate the aroma, which is wonderfully complemented by lemongrass and lemon balm. Green apple is not to be missed, of course. A certain profundity can also be sensed. The Gaispfad Riesling smells damn good according to its origin and the common way of making there.


Here, too, the Gaispfad Mosel Riesling exudes purity. It is elegant and light-footed. The 12 % Vol. you almost do not feel. The phenolic is wonderfully used as a stylistic device. The slate background comes to its deserved stage haptically as well as retronasally. The typical Riesling aromatics of citrus and fresh apples are wonderfully supported by a subtle herbal note. On the finish, it prances along and has a long playful effect on the palate.
