The Forster Musenhang is an Erste Lage (Premier Cru) site, situated high on the slope to the Haardt Mountains, and its soils are laden with limestone and weathered sandstone. This is one of Markus' cooler sites, where he organically farms a 0.6 hectare parcel. Aromatically, Musenhang (the slope of musing) floats on a spectrum of floral and spice tones, including lime blossom, vanilla bean, and nutmeg. The palate is fairly weighted, but stays nimble with interlacing ribbons of minerality, that carries notes of black truffle oil and lemon zest through to a finely dry finish. Serious Riesling, but remains accessible to all.
