This 100% Riesling gets its name from the slate vineyards located in Mosel, Germany.  The thin slate stones found in the vineyards reflect and retain heat in the Mosel River’s cool climate.  The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks for four months.

Nose: Citrus, floral, minerality, and a hint of peach.
Palate: Juicy and lively medium-dry wine with notes of lemon, peach, honeysuckle, minerality, and bright acidity.  A bargain at this price!
Alcohol: 10.6%
SRP: $12
Pairing: Drink as an aperitif, or enjoy with a wide range of food such as spicy cuisine, shellfish, or white meat.
