The 'Terra Montosa' is a blend of riesling grapes selected from the second vineyards (and younger vines) in Georg Breuer's stunning estate. Though originally intended as a 'second wine' to Teresa's Grand Cru offering, this exceptional wine has come to be lauded in its own right. Precise and perfectly balanced, brimming with ripe peach, nashi pear and zesty lime. A wine that is truly second to none.
Pretty peaches and apricots, as well as chamomile and dried lemons follow through to a finely tuned, medium palate that’s bursting with vibrant acidity and fleshy stone fruit. So drinkable and delicious now.
Winemaking dynamo Theresa Breuer took the reins at her family estate in Rheingau in 2004, aged 18 when her father passed away. The estate was founded in 1880 by Peter Breuer and owns some of the steepest, most prized vineyards in the Rheingau including several Grand Cru. Peter's grandson Bernhard was a true ambassador for Riesling, playing an important role in restoring its respectability in world markets after the lost Liebfraumilch years.
His motto was: "I wish to produce wines that make the specific characteristics of their origin visible". Theresa has continued to build on his legacy improving and innovating and has converted their vineyards to organics. Read our interview with Theresa and her stunning 2019 vintage on the blog
