Axel Pauly is one of the dynamic young stars of German wine. He took over the Pauly estate from his father after doing vintages in California, New Zealand and other parts of Germany. Fittingly, the label features the Mosel hills which, when turned on their side, reveals the ‘Tres Naris’ (or ‘three noses’) of Axel, his father and his grandfather.
‘Purist’ Riesling was harvested from the family’s steeply sloping vineyard in Lieser. Here, the soil is predominantly grey and blue slate, which is cooler than the red slate of neighbouring Bernkastel, and seems to give more minerally wines than the latter.
The majority of Axel’s wines are dry or off-dry in style and are closed with screwcap to preserve the purity and freshness from Riesling grown on the famous slate soils of the Mosel.Dodatne informacije (PDF)
