The Zilliken family traces its wine growing tradition back to 1742. The early generations toiled in Saarburg and Ockfen, but it was Royal Prussian Forest Superintendent Ferdinand Geltz (1851 – 1925) who laid the groundwork for what would become one of the grandest family-owned estates anywhere on the Saar and Mosel.
Ferdinand Geltz was a co-founder of the "Vereins der Naturweinversteigerer Großer Ring," an organisation today known as the VDP Mosel-Saar-Ruwer (Verband Deutscher Prädikatsweingüter). It promoted the sale of premier quality unchaptalised wines as a way to raise the profile, both domestically and internationally, of the outstanding Rieslings' being produced in this wine growing region
Grape Varieties: 100% Riesling
Tasting Notes: Floral leafiness, smoky minerality and crisp green notes of young apricots. On the palate, bright flavours of lemon and apple lead into a pleasing spice finish. Drinking beautifully now, so open a bottle, put your feet up and enjoy!
