Sybille Kuntz’s Riesling Spatlese Halbtrocken 1993 has been maturing in the Kuntz’s cellar its whole life before arriving with us in March 2024. It is a wonderful example of aged German Riesling with developed fruit and petrol characteristics along with a beautiful cassis note. This is a fantastic chance to try some aged German Riesling.

Sybille Kuntz took over the running of her family vineyards in 1981. She had left her hometown of Lieser to study business administration in Wuppertal, a town about forty miles north of Cologne and whilst there opened a wine shop to help fund her studies. The shop was a success and sold a vast array of German wines, but Sybille felt disappointed by many of the wines and felt she could do better. She is a lady with high standards, and this can be seen in her meticulous attention to detail in the vineyards and the wines. The 20-hectare estate is farmed biodynamically with the aid of her husband, Markus, who shares the same passion and love for the Riesling grape as his wife. The jewel in the Kuntz’s crown is their large parcels of vineyards in the Grand Cru of Niederberg-Helden, which sits above the town of Lieser on a 70-degree slope. These vines, planted in the 1920s, get amazing amounts of sunshine due to their exposure and benefit from additional sunlight which reflects off the Mosel River with mirror-like intensity.
