Georg Breuer, Terrra Montosa
By Pete's Provisions
WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
Bright pale yellow, enticing aromas of yellow fruits, hay, wet stone and sweet spiciness. On the palate there is an impressive complexity paired with hints of tannin and strong acidity. A connection between concentra- tion and lightness.
ABOUT THE WINERY
The estate was founded in 1880, and has been owned by the Breuer family since the start of the 20th Century. Under Georg Breuer (1910-82) the estate was enlarged and imports greatly increased. Vineyard ownership reached 15 hectares by the 1980s, with further expansion increasing the figure to its current level.
Theresa Breuer currently manages the business. She was named Winemaker of the Year for 2016 in the major German magazine Falstaff.
Notably, she took over in 2004, at the age of just 20, following the unexpected early passing of her father Bernhard. He had been instrumental in creating the estate's international reputation. But his daughter has, with the support of other family members, proved up to the task.
