Surprisingly gentle - but so insistent you keep having to taste again and again! A really clever, subtle but statuesque wine that excites and intrigues in equal measure. Such balance between the finely honed orchard fruit and hedgerow florality - and the neatly lithe acidity. Very sophisticated. L&S (Nov 2022)

Delicate and beautifully balanced. Spring in a bottle. Blossom and minerals. There is pure fruity sweetness but the acidity perfectly counters it. Drinking range: 2022 - 2032 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Apr 2022)

Exuberant and ostentatious is not Peter Lehnert’s wont, and thus you have to focus your olfactory efforts on detecting the finer aromas of the Goldtröpfchen. You will be rewarded with delicate aromas of green and yellow fruit as well as a fine spicy nuance. All that hard work is rewarded on the palate with a juicy expression of sweet apple and gooseberry, no need for tropical flavours. A successful combination of animating acidity and a dash of spice keep the taste buds stimulated Drinking range: 2021 - 2027 Rating: 16.5 Michael Schmidt, JancisRobinson.com (Jul 2021)

Weingut Lehnert-Veit

Located in the heart of the romantic Mosel, the Lehnert-Veit family has a long tradition of quality wine-growing, dating back to 1653 when Eucharius Lehnert was at the helm. These traditions have been passed on through the generations, all the way to the current 10th generation, led by Peter Lehnert (who happened to go to university with Stefan Braunewell). Their hometown of Piesport is on the bank of the Mosel and their 11 hectares of vines are around the town on both sides of the river, with some of the best sites: ‘premier crus’ Falkenberg and Günterslay as well as the jewel in the crown, the ‘grand cru’ vineyard Goldtröpfchen.

Their estate wines are the starting point for the classification of their vineyards. They are situated in carefully selected locations on exceptional soils made of quartzite, sand and slate. The soil of the Falkenberg and Günterslay ‘Erste Lagen’ have a higher proportion of rough stone, giving the pinot noirs their elegance and lightness. Finally the ‘Grosse Lage’ Goldtröpfchen is home to Lehnert-Veit’s top Rieslings. This renowned terroir has a higher proportion of fine slate at a much greater depth, giving the wine its intense minerality and roundness. Ripe, yellow summer fruits like peach, apricot and mirabelle and, depending on the year, different citrus fruits as well.

Peter says ‘Our winemaking philosophy begins in the vineyard. Integrated winegrowing, organic fertilization, low cutting, thinning of the grapes in the summer, selective harvesting, gentle aging and a fermentation with natural yeast are key. Always with an emphasis on wines of the highest quality.’
