Thorsten's special cellar below his house has somewhat a unique micro-climate. Most of his Rieslings would ferment dry within the first 12 months but then there are barrels that keep fermenting (slowly) for many more months, sometimes years! The aptly named 'Lentum' is one of them and it is astonishing to see how this evolution gives the wine a character that is far away from Mosel Riesling. To us it is like drinking energetic Chablis with the perfume of slate grown Riesling. A wine with lots of attitude and panache.
