The parcels in the Piesporter Goldtröpfchen are among the stoniest and craggiest of the entire Goldtröpfchen vineyard. As a result one can find many ungrafted vines from hundreds of years ago. The rays of sunlight reflect off the Mosel, bathing the entire site in a warm, glittering light. The heavy, clayey slate soils offer plentiful water and warmth to the vines, with the dark slate cliffs storing the energy from the sun like a battery. Wines from the Piesporter Goldtröpfchen are traditionally left with residual sweetness. That natural sugar lends the wines notes of black currants, passion fruit and grapefruit. Even after upwards of 30 years these wines retain their fresh and youthful flavors.
