Von Schleinitz 2017 Riesling Nitor Dry
The Haehn Family behind the Von Schleinitz brand have a winemaking history that goes back to 1468. The winery is consistently rated as one of the Top 100 in Germany and wins international awards.
NITOR is Latin for “excellence”, an appropriate name for a wine from high Auslese ripeness grapes — vinified dry — that reflects soil and climate in its taste, but finishes with elegance and finesse.
The ripeness creates a wonderful counterpart to the tingling and refreshing acidity that is indicative of dry Riesling.
Only 400 cases are produced -- and only 70 cases imported — of this beautiful dry Riesling from a single vineyard on the steep hills of the Mosel. It is reflective of the minerality of the soil and the unique micro climate of the area.
Food Pairing: Savory cuisine, cured sausages, salad, pasta, and all kinds of seafood. This a very versatile wine.
