Markus Molitor Riesling Masterclass – Thursday 9th February

In 2015, Markus Molitor snared a hat-trick of 100-point scores from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate for three of his Auslese Rieslings, thereby earning him the moniker ‘Herr 300 Punkte’ (Mr. 300 Points).

At the time, it was just the latest in a litany of accolades Markus had garnered since taking over the family’s Mosel-based estate in 1984, when just 20 years old.

Today, Markus tends to 120ha of vineyards, 75% of which are classified as Grosse Lage (Grand Cru) sites, while the rest are located on the fertile banks of the Saar river; all perch on precipitous slopes, and here you will find some vines which have been in the ground for 100 years.

The estate produces 80 unique wines each year, from grapes spontaneously fermented in wooden barrels with natural yeasts. However, the focus of this masterclass will be Markus Molitor’s astonishing, dry Riesling Ausleses from the ancient, ungrafted vineyards of Zeltinger Sonnenuhr.

Hosted by Daniel Kiowski, Markus Molitor’s export director and a former sommelier at many of Germany’s Michelin-starred restaurants, this promises to be an evening of exceptional wine, where Members are afforded the rare opportunity to taste library vintages of Markus’ exceptional Rieslings and experience the astonishing ageing potential of the grape.

The wines we will be tasting:
2021 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese** White Cap Trocken 
2018 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese** White Cap Trocken 
2015 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese** White Cap Trocken
