2018 Rudolf Trossen Silbermond Feinherb Riesling

Mosel, Germany

Edgy, engaging 'natural' Mosel Riesling, with concentration and length



About The Wine

The pioneering Trossens of the Mosel release fascinating Rieslings, with an holistic philosophy to farming and winemaking, and a zero additions approach. These are the most natural rieslings you can drink, yet they retain a delicious purity of fruit.

This is a crunchy, textural slightly off-dry Riesling that carries about 20 grams of residual sugar, a Feinherb style of wine.

About Rudolf Trossen

Rita and Rudolf Trossen are true natural wine pioneers, converting to biodynamics way back in 1978, and then, from 2010, starting to produce fabulously interesting Rieslings entirely without additives, including zero sulphur. An absolutely ground-breaking couple.

Long lees aging adds depth of flavour and super texture to all their idiosyncratic wines.

The Trossen vineyards, around the village of Kinheim-Kindel in the heart of the Mosel valley, are full of blue slate, and many are extremely old, and wonderfully phylloxera-resistant.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Inspired by sommeliers and experienced wine lovers, we have gradually gained access to the world of "vins naturel". In 2010 we bottled a Riesling without intervention for the first time: nothing added, nothing taken away, no additives and no filtration. Without the stabilizing agent sulfur, the Riesling develops completely different in smell and taste than usual and reveals previously undiscovered depths and finesse.

We leave the wines on the lees for a very long time and wait until all biological processes have faded and then hand-fill the wines into champagne bottles and close them with a bottle cap to preserve the natural carbon dioxide. So protected against premature oxidation, the wines can be stored for quite a long time.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"From a red slate soil, single vineyard. Rudi Trossen is one of the most terrific people to visit in Mosel and brings to life some of Germany’s most unique and atypical wine. Not to be missed, for me. Bustling, juicy, lengthy wine of intensity and great freshness. Green apple, cider vinegar edginess, crystalline texture, exceptional length. Not clean cut Mosel by any stretch. Sorbet finish, touch of tart tang lingers. Delicious, vivacious wine of incredible joy." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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 02 8376 8775 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).
