Mosel

One of the most important of the 13 wine regions and the third biggest wine region in terms of area, the Mosel region is so-called because of the Mosel River that runs through it. The vines are planted along the steep river banks making the vines some of the most labour-intensive in the industry! Mosel is dominated with white grape varieties with Riesling taking centre stage and giving the region its reputation. Unlike other Rieslings, they give off floral aromas, rather than fruity notes and are crisp, dry and high in acidity. Why not try Von Blauem Schiefer Riesling 2010 a notable example of a Riesling from this region.
