Rudolf Trossen Lay ‘Purus’ Riesling Trocken 2018




Rudolf’s early years working the family vines, spraying with chemicals & fertilizers, led to a  realisation that there had to be another way. A book by Rudolf Steiner (the founder of the biodynamic approach to viticulture), marked the beginning of over 40 years in biodynamic viticulture for the Trossen wines. The purity, minerality and energy seem to reflect the abundance of life both above & below the soils in his vineyards.

The Purus wines are natural, the others have tiny additions of sulphur (still qualifying for biodynamic status), to avoid losing the vineyard expression in the glass.

About This Wine...


Only 100 cases produced in an average year.

Grapes are hand harvested and whole bunches are fermented in a 1000-liter wooden tank with indigenous yeast. The wine cooled by ambient air and fermentation takes place over 8 months. The wine ages for about 8 months and is bottled without fining or filtration and zero sulfur is added.

Incredibly this white smells & looks as if it’s going to be sweet! On the nose – a scent of honey, red apples and canned peaches. Full and fresh in taste with a slightly bitter red apple fruit. Lightly creamy with a dry finish.
