Andreas Bender Paulessen Zenit Riesling Trocken is a white wine made from Riesling in Mosel by Andreas Bender.
Andreas Bender named this wine after the historical name of his family's estate, known as "Paulessen", whose history dates back to the 17th century. As one of the flagship wines of his collection, the dry Riesling "Paulessen Zenit" is part of the Zenit line. At their optimum quality, the Riesling grapes of "Paulessen Zenit" undergo a drying process before harvesting. These grapes are carefully selected on steep, elevated sites with ideal sun exposure. The result is truly impressive, with subtle notes of rose and captivating aromas of ripe yellow apples, accompanied by hints of honey.
Andreas Bender is recognised by his fellow winemakers as a "Moselle disruptor": he is unconventional, combines a modern approach with an appreciation of tradition and considers careful control to be more valuable than making endless adjustments to achieve the desired flavour profile in the wine.

In addition, it is enriched with subtle hints of rose petals and a light touch of honey, contributing to an unrivalled aromatic intensity in the glass. Gentle mineral nuances on the nose and palate enhance these impressions with outstanding elegance. The acidity, although present, is skilfully integrated, giving the wine body and length.
