2018 Markus Molitor Zeltinger Himmelreich Kabinett Riesling 1.5L

Mosel, Germany

The only thing better than Mosel Riesling perfection? Mosel Riesling perfection in magnum.




About The Wine

As you follow the Mosel river towards Koblenz you arrive at Zeltinger after you have passed through the more famous villages of Grach and Wehlen. Zeltinger has clay slate soils and a North Westerly aspect. Like all great Mosel these wines have cut glass clarity with a core of pithy citrus and white stone fruit but Zeltinger bottlings are some of the raciest and they have a distinctively spicy character.

This is a typical expression and, drunk from Magnum, it’s one of those wines that make you feel invincible, the energy of the wine is contagious and it inspires you to get up and go and grab life by the horns. It’s also a complete bargain.

About Markus Molitor

Markus Molitor took over his father's winery in the mid-1980s, when in its eighth generation of family ownership.

He approaches winemaking with meticulosity, endeavouring to make wines typical of the Mosel region that are reminiscent of the "golden times" of Mosel Riesling.

He allows the location and environment to reflect within the wine, creating individual and expressive wines. His strict and careful craftsmanship creates wines of the highest qualities, and some of the most beautiful from the region.

From The Producer

Every single one of our wines, no matter whether white or red, whether dry, fine dry or fruity-sweet, whether quality or predicate wine, reflects the potential of its location and its vintage. As individual, authentic and expressive as possible. This requires strict selection, precise handwork and the conscious assessment of each individual berry.

Critic Reviews

Wine Advocate

"The 2018 Riesling Zeltinger Himmelreich Kabinett is very clear, precise and provided with bright and intense stone fruit aromas on the very elegant, refined and flinty/slatey nose. Round and lush on the palate, this is a very charming and mouth-salivating Riesling in the light and medium-sweet, very charming style." - Stephan Reinhardt (The Wine Advocate)

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
