On the riverbanks of the Mosel, right at the edge of the town Bernkastel the top site of Bernkasteler Lay is situated. The vineyard is West-Southwest oriented, which guarantees as maximum of sunlight during the day. The name Bernkasteler Lay relates directly to its name, as “Lay” is an old expression for slate in the local dialect. The slate is decomposed and fine, regularly producing superb quality. 

The grapes have been handpicked and carefully selected in the various areas of the vineyard. They were only slightly squeezed and then left for 24 hours to macerate before being gently pressed. The wine has been fermented without any addition of cultured yeast or enzymes for a period of four till five month. After the fermentation was completed, it was left to mature for several more months on the lees in order to gain more stability and complexity. 

 Wine Description Food Affinities A sensational bouquet of ripe and juicy tropical fruit with starfruit, maracuya, papaya and apricots. A touch of mint and an intense minerality as well as a beautiful acidity make this wine very elegant. 

 Fabulous with fish and seafood. Great with poultry and any kind of spicy dishes. Analysis Accolades Alcohol: 8,0 % Wine Enthusiast 93 Points Residual Sugar: 99,9 g/l Wine Spectator 95 Points
