    Van Volxem Saar Riesling Dry 2020

    Saar Valley, Mosel

    The Saar Riesling begins to display the advanced vine age and dry style that Van Volxem is known for. From 30+ year old vines, the sweetness of the VV gives way to white flowers and white peach on the nose. The palate is marked by a concentration and density that begins to shine a light on this world class terroir.

    Located in the historic center of Wiltingen in the Saar Valley, the Van Volxem winery dates back to Roman times. The vineyards date back to the 3rd century, and the traces of the original villa remain to this day. Gustav van Volxem purchased the property in the wake of the French Revolution, which ended generations of monastic control. Gustav was a true visionary, and recognized the potential of his spectacular vineyard sites. The estate gained international acclaim over the four generations of Van Volxem family stewardship that followed Gustav. In 2000, Roman Niewodniczanski purchased the property and embarked on an ambitious program to revive the prestige of German Riesling, which a century before commanded higher prices than the top estates of Burgundy or Bordeaux.
