My Karp is quintessential Riesling, displaying the majesty and zip of this great grape. It’s just off-dry with intense citrus and apricot fruit and a steely freshness. A beautifully balanced, fresh white from this 5-Star, 17th century estate.
The Karp-Schreiber estate, family owned since 1664, lies in the heart of the Mosel. This important region starts southwest of the ancient city of Trier and follows the Mosel river through the Rhineland to Koblenz where the Mosel joins the Rhine. Dramatic, slate covered slopes are the key to the Mosel’s wine quality. Estate manager Alwin Karp and winemaker son Jobst Julius have 6 hectares of Riesling, cultivated on these steep slopes, even including a patch of Grand Cru Juffer Sonnenuhr vines. The vineyards being far too precarious for machinery, hand tending is their only option. The off-dry My Karp from the very good 2019 vintage is a Mosel classic – fruity, delicate and steely fresh. It’s the ideal apéritif or partner to light dishes.
"Light, ethereal, beautifully balanced wine. Pears, apples, lemon sherbet. Favourite find this year"
