Forstmeister Geltz-Zilliken 2020 Saarburg Riesling Kabinett, Mosel, Germany

The Zilliken family's ties to wine making in Germany can be traced back to 1742. Dorothee Ziliken has been working with her father since 2007, and officially took over as winemaker in 2016. The Ziliken family has and continues to work diligently to intervene as little as possible with the vine, focusing on the healthiest fruit possible to create the best wines. With the deepest cellar within the Saar Valley that is located a whooping three stories beneath the earth, the cellar has natural conditions of 100% humidity and a consistently cool temperature. This helps fermentation stay slow in their preferred neutral oak Fuder casks, where the wines are vinified from start to finish.

  • Winemaker: Dorothee Ziliken
  • Farming: Biodynamic
  • Grape Variety: Riesling
  • Terroir: Gray Devonian slate
  • Vinification:  The grapes ferment and age with 100% neutral Fuder barrels, all in their extremely humid, deeply underground cellar. 
  • Tasting Notes: This wine is nuanced with notes of tangerines, green apples, and honeysuckle. On the palate the wine is a touch sweet, with balancing, bracing acidity and an ethereal, delicately impressive finish of candied lemon rind.
