The Moselle-Saar-Ruwer is an area of Germany crossed by the three rivers Moselle, Saar and Ruwer. The climate is sunny and mild, with average temperatures around 20 ° C in spring and many hours of light per year. The strong character of the vine and the abundant annual harvest are due to the excellent self-regulation of the screw, which is able to filter the sunlight to ensure that the temperature does not exceed a certain limit and is optimal for the growth of the plant. The best vines are those that grow near the river, because they are more exposed to the sun and light. A decisive contribution to the development of the Reisling, which represents 75% of the area's production, is given by the composition of the soil: red slate, rich in copper, gray, rich in zinc and blue, rich in iron, give the vine a character b> persistent, acidic and tannic, giving a wine with a unique and singular aroma. The climate of the Moselle valley is different depending on the location: the Upper Moselle, which has a cool climate, is suitable for the production of sparkling wines such as Seck or wines such as Muller-Thugau.
Media Rieslings Mosel have a moderate degree of minerality, thanks to the red and gray slate soil composition, while the South of the Moselle gives dry and generally more liqueur wines.
The most popular types of Riesling are: Kabinett, Spätlese, Auslese and Auslese Goldkapsel (golden capsule), very fine and particular wines.
