While there are currently wines crafted in every corner of the world, the great white wines from Germany are in a word, unique. One of the most picturesque wine landscapes in Europe, the vineyards of the Mosel cling to the hillsides of the winding river below. The dramatic sloping vineyards protect the vines from extreme weather, while the famous slate soils impart incredible minerality to the wines. In fact, this "stoney" quality is so important to the wines, that when the rain washes the slate down the hill, the vineyard workers must carry the soil back up the perilous slopes to replenish the vineyards. Talk about commitment!
"Wonderful floral nose followed by ripe flavors of melon, white peach and a hint of citrus complimented by a touch of sweetness and balanced nicely by a crisp lively finish." The Wine Buyer, 90 Points
