A Catholic monastery in the famed Mosel valley, making wines since 1673 (in a place with vineyards dating back to the 12th century), extreme terroir in some of the northernmost vineyards in Europe, and a young Australian winemaker (the only one in this neck of the woods) with big ideas: mix it all together and you have the very modern incarnation of Kloster Ebernach. This is a brand-new dry Riesling from Martin Cooper, and 35-year-old vineyards undergoing conversion to biodynamic certification. Martin uses barely any sulphur as a preservative at any stage in production. Wine is naturally fermented in enormous, 2000-litre old oak barrels, undergoing partial malolactic, and ageing on the lees for 6 months. The 2015 vintage for Mosel Riesling shows classic traits, similar to 2010 with ripe fruit and structuring acidity, making incredibly aromatic and ageworthy wines.
