Vade Retro

  • Vade Retro


    This Riesling is Thorsten Melsheimer’s flagship wine, vinified with zero intervention in the cellar. The grapes come from some of the steepest plots in the Reil area and are hand picked with meticulous care. The fruit is spontaneously fermented on the skins in large oak casks without pumping or filtration. No sulphur is added to the wine, signalling a very natural style of winemaking rarely seen in the Mosel. For Thorsten, the Vade Retro is the pinnacle of the minimal intervention style, intended to express the potential of this grape variety at its purest and most natural.
