Finding a wine that can impress everyone at the table can prove to be quite difficult. Here's a wine from Mosel, Germany that can do just that! It's a modern, clean and fresh riesling that lends itself to all sorts of food pairings. Everything from sushi, pork, or to Mexican and Thai. Grab a bottle of this riesling to pair it with.
The thin slate stones of our vineyards in the Mosel River Valley are a critical factor in crafting a Riesling of exquisite balance. So precious are these stones that those which slip into the river are carefully carried back up the treacherously steep vineyard slopes and returned to place. The Mosel has a great wine growing tradition of more than 2000 years, brought here by the Romans. It is the home of Riesling and recognized all over the world. The soil with its thin slate stones is a critical factor. Reflecting and retaining heat, the slate is essential to ripening grapes in this cool climate.
Healthy grapes, gentle pressing, strict purification of musts, fermentation with selected yeasts
under temperature controlled conditions, storage in stainless steel tanks until bottling.
Wine Tasting Notes
Grapes from the Lower Mosel provide mineral notes, grapes from the Middle Mosel create a hint of spiciness and grapes from the Upper Mosel supply fresh, peach flavors. The result is a clean, fresh flavor and a perfectly balanced taste profile that is delicious with food and perfect to share with friends.
Riesling is the most versatile white wine for food matching. This Riesling serves across a wide range of food companions, e.g. Mexican, Indian and Chinese dishes, Thai cuisine, similarly hot and spicy foods. But also perfect with sushi, fish, poultry and pork or simply on its own.
