Saint of the Mosel, Rebel of the Mosel, whatever you want to call him, Ulli Stein fights the man, and wins! The steep slate slopes of the Mosel are known for white wine production namely Riesling and it was actually illegal under an old Nazi law to plant red varietals here (because Riesling is more profitable) of course until Ulli crushed that silliness! These 25+ year vines come right from Ulli’s front yard, a sight to be seen against the breathtaking Mosel River. Vinified in old barrique. Why does it do it? Because he can. And with ever-climbing temperatures, the Cab. Sauv. is ripening quite well.
