Moselland Pink Cat Riesling – 500ML
From Rheinhessen, Germany, Moselland Pink Cat Riesling has a 10% ABV and is made from 100% Riesling grapes. This black cat decanter is filled with flavorful pears and citrus aromas. Easy on the palate, the fresh and fruity flavors have a balanced sweetness compared to your typical crisp and acidic Riesling. The grapes are chosen from select vineyards. They are then gently pressed and go through a STRICT purification before being fermented with the yeast. The wine is fermented and stored in temperature controlled stainless steel barrels and bottled cold. Moselland Black Cat Riesling pairs well with lighter meals, spicy dishes, or simply chilled on its own.
The Rheinhessen region is Germany s largest wine growing region. Its beginnings go back to the Romans who already planted vines along the banks of the Rhine River.
It enjoys the climate of a protected basin and is an area with some of Germany s warmest and driest climate. Overall, it has low precipitation, warm summers and mild winters.
Riesling is grown on approx. 9,400 acres, which represents 14% of the total vineyards.
Vintage Notes: After an early bud break and calm winter season, these grapes finished with normal growing conditions. Majority of the grapes were harvested during optimal conditions due to great harvest management. This led to near perfect sugar levels and a moderate acidity. Fermentation went off without a hitch.
