WEINGUT RUDOLF TROSSEN

The Trossen winery, in the town of Kindel, is situated less than 500 feet from the banks of the Mosel River and a few kilometres south east from the villages of Urzig and Erden.

The surrounding geology is dominated by weathered grey and blue slate, gifting the fruit fine aromas and intense minerality.  Wines from Kinheim-Kindel are rarely heavy and alcoholic but instead have a delicate fragrance with a vein of salinity and cooling zest.  

Since 1978, the Trossens have endeavoured to practise the most natural viticulture possible.  Biodynamic farming lies at the heart of their ethos and everything...

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR YOU

TASTING NOTES

The Madonna vineyard is a parcel of pre-phylloxera vines, which combined with the Trossen's low impact winemaking ensures a wonderfully pure expression of Riesling. Fine and concentrated this Riesling is brimming with ripe citrus, a touch of tropical fruit and a clearly defined slatey minerality. As with all of Trossen's wines any residual sugar is lifted by fine acidity to...

TASTING NOTES

The Rudolf Trossen Silbermond Riesling is a pale yellow green colour. The nose is elegant and restrained showing notes of lime, lime peel, white stone fruit, green tomato, pineapple and a touch of Riesling's characteristic petroleum note. The palate is equally restrained and all the better for it. Subtle flavours of lime flesh, tropical pineapple and grapefruit fill the reveal...

TASTING NOTES

Mango, glazed pineapple, root beer and caramel inform a headily ripe and exotic nose – tinged with musk, sweat, and smoke – and also an almost syrupy-sweet and viscous palate. Piquant hints of orange rind and a bit of fresh orange juiciness are outgunned in the finish by the onslaught of caramelized tropical fruit concentrate.

TASTING NOTES

The first of our single vineyard offerings, the Ürziger Würzgarten is an amphitheatre, trapping the sun’s warmth and yielding deliciously exotic and spicy wines. The red slate and volcanic soil make it one of the most striking vineyards along the Mosel. Like the Schiefersteil, Molitor’s white capsule Kabinett reflects a somewhat drier style of Kabinett. As the Wine Advocate says...

TASTING NOTES

A jump up in both sweetness and concentration, Molitor’s superb late harvest Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Spätlese comes from his most famous vineyard. Less than 20 hectares, the Zeltinger Sonnenuhr comprises of mostly ungrafted vines on narrow terraces. The yields are low but superb quality, consistently showing “an incomparably elegant ripeness relative to the vintage”, as Markus himself explains. Of the 2016 release,...

is hand made with minimal intervention.  In fact, Rita and Rudolf Trossen have kept their production at a level where they do not need to use any machinery.

Rudolf is a maverick.  He is a passionate eco warrior with a steely twinkle in his eye.  Behind the humble exterior is a man driven to show the true essence of his various parcels in what is Riesling’s most prestigious region. Included in his vineyards is a parcel in the Madonna Plateau, a plot with pre-phylloxera vines which yields Riesling with exceptional concentration.

These are truly unique wines, with unparalleled balance, energy, density and a personality all of their own.  After many years searching for a winery from the Mosel, we are very proud to now represent the Trossen family in the UK.
