Laura from Weingut Markus Molitor in Roskilde

Laura Dreher from Weingut Markus Molitor

Laura Dreher, who is sales and marketing manager at Weingut Markus Molitor, was last weekend in Roskilde to present some famous Mosel-wines at Otto Suensons wineshop (see yesterday). She was - with her Weinkönigin-smile - telling about the wines to the many people who wanted to taste (and buy) excellent German wines. She told about Riesling, the soil, the balance between residual sugar and acidity etc. and seemed to enjoy what she was doing.
I tasted 4 Rieslings and bought the two I liked most, see below. These wines are not Trocken or Halbtrocken, but Lieblich (residual sugar more than 18 gr/liter), but the mentioned balance between suger and acidity gives a dryness which I very much like.
Many more people should learn German wines to know - until they do, they don't know what wonderful wineexperinces they have missed.

Always nice when you can combine portrait photography and wine tasting!

Looks like Laura knew what she was talking about. I hope you will enjoy the wine.

Yes, enjoy the beautiful German wines. What an interesting post today! If I have wine, I prefer halbtocken and lieblich too.
