2015, Dry, 12%, 750ml
This wine is from Weingut Rinke and the vineyard is located in the Southern Moselle region at Langsur. Langsurer Brüderberg is uniquely terraced and rich in limestone soils, making it a great place to grow Burgundy wines. A very intense nose of flowers and minerals. The palate is vibrant, full of flavour, refreshing acidity and finishes long.
70–75% Chardonnay, the rest is Viognier, Traminer, Muscat, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc.
12 – 14°C
Up to 3 years. Could go longer if you don’t mind losing the floral notes.
Drink by itself or with garden salad with balsamic vinegar; pan-fried or oven roasted pork; steamed white chicken; brie or creamy goat cheeses.

Mossel Chardonnay. Light and fresh. Lemons and limes on both nose and mouth. Medium acidity. Good finish. - Gavin (The Wine Taster)
Intense yellow, classy and complex flavors, good balance of acid and alcohol, creaminess points towards long time fermentation on yeast. If aged in barrel, it was done very gently, as to not get the wood taste in the center. Long finish. I notice that a year ago I rated the same wine with only 3 stars. What has changed: one more year for the wine to age and I have grown fond of the Rinke way of making wine with unorthodox methods, minimal intervention and having worked in the vineyard for 2 days. - Dominik Schweizer
