Riesling 2011

The fresh, balanced taste of clean slate is achieved by carefully selecting grapes from vineyards throughout the Mosel. The steep blue slate slopes of the Lower Mosel give the wine its minerality while the Middle Mosel provides a hint of spice to complement the characteristic fresh peach flavors of the Upper Mosel.

Tasting Notes

Ripe peach flavors balance ripe acidity, hints of lime and characteristic mineral notes.

Food Pairing

Pairs beautifully with spicy cuisines, Asian, Tex-Mex, Indian, White fish, and Sushi.
