2013 KARTHÄUSERHOF -- 2013 Grosses Gewächs (Mosel)

This estate owns the entirety of the Eitelsbach Karthäuserhof, the magnificent hill that sits across the narrow Ruwer Valley from Carl von Schubert’s magnificent hill that contains his Abtsberg, Herrenberg, and Bruderberg vineyards. The dry wines here have been top quality for quite some time, and the 2013 is no exception.
