Axel Pauly is one of the rising stars of German wine. He took over the Pauly estate from his father after doing vintages in California, New Zealand and other parts of Germany. Most of the nine hectares of vineyards are in the heart of the Mosel Valley in the village of Lieser, with the exception of a small parcel in the highly regarded, neighbouring village of Bernkastel. The majority of Axel’s wines are dry or off-dry in style and are closed with screwcap to preserve the purity and freshness of the Riesling grown on the famous slate soils of the Mosel.
This Riesling is bright yellow in colour with green reflexes. The nose reveals aromas of sweet honey melon, ripe apple, peach and pineapple. On the palate, it is fresh and lively with a well balanced sweetness and acidity.
