“The thin slate stones of the vineyards in the Mosel River Valley are a critical factor in crafting this Riesling. Reflecting and retaining heat, the slate is essential to ripening grapes in this cool climate, developing the wine’s fresh peach, crisp lime, and subtle mineral flavors. Versatile for food pairing, this Riesling goes great with Mexican, Thai or any hot and spicy food, but is also perfect with Sushi or pork. Grab this wine when you don’t know what to have with dinner.”

FOOD & WINE PAIRING: “This wine results from a partnership between German and American interests, hence the comprehensible, non-Teutonic name. But it’s simple: Pure citrus, ginger, and mineral notes make it a perfect match for the Sesame Noodle Salad with Tofu salad, and its hint of sweetness means that you can ramp up the chile as much as you want.”
