Lothar Kettern, Fio 2019 Riesling "Socalcos"

An object lesson in how to do “Natural Wine” right in the Mosel, in the sense that it declaims its origins much more powerfully than its technique. Classic green-tinged Mosel colour and a big smoky nose. The wine spent 18 months on the lees, giving it a beautiful silky balance. Filigree and focused. “Genius” I wrote on tasting it!
