Piesporter, Schmitt Sohne, 2017
Piesporter Michelsberg QbA is a beautifully fragrant, medium-bodied wine with upfront fruit that continues to develop on the palate. Made from Riesling and Müller-Thurgau grapes, hints of peaches and green apples are balanced perfectly with crisp acidity to provide a clean and fresh finish. Light enough to enjoy as an aperitif or enjoy with meat and seafood dishes.
Over 200 years ago the founders settled in the small village of Lonquich, located along the Mosel River in the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer wine region, and began their involvement in vineyard management and wine production. In 1919 Hilar Schmitt, founded the parent company as a small regional winery and set forth his philosophy of producing the best wines possible using only top quality grapes from each successive vintage. Always mindful of their ancestors philosophy, the winery, which is still located in Longuich, has continued to grow and change through the guidance of three successive generations to become Schmitt Söhne, one of the largest and most successful German wine producers today.
