Germany’s Mosel is arguably the world’s epicenter of great riesling, and the centuries-old estate of Weingut Karthäuserhof perfectly embodies the region’s deep winemaking history. Nestled deep in the heart of the Mosel in the small town of Eitelsbach, the vineyards lie alongside the Ruwer River just above its junction with the Mosel River. Its name translates as “Farm of the Carthusians,” as it was first established as a monastery in the 11th century, and the same family has overseen winemaking for the last six generations. Today operations are in the hands of acclaimed winemaker Christoph Tyrell, who took over in 1986 (named “Winemaker of the Year” in 1997). ‘Bruno’ is a series of rieslings named in honor of Bruno of Cologne, the founder of the Carthusians, and offers an accessible, affordable introduction to Karthäuserhof. Grapes were hand harvested and gently pressed prior to fermentation and aging, both in stainless steel. Bottled without fining or filtration, this dry riesling absolutely vibrates with energy, displaying layers of peach, lime zest, and citrus blossom alongside hints of petrol, herbs, and abundant minerality before snappy acidity finishes it all off just to make you beg for another sip.
