This 100 % Riesling wine from the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region was fermented and stored in stainless steel, temperature controlled and bottled cold sterile. Alcohol: ca. 9. 0 vol. % Residual Sugar: ca. 32. 3 g/l Acidity: ca. 7. 7 g/l According to legend, three wine merchants came to the town of Zell (in Germany) to buy wine. They were about to sample out of a barrel when a black cat suddenly jumped on it, arched its back, and swiped its paw at anyone who approached it. The wine merchants chose the barrel guarded by the cat thinking it held the best wine. Zeller Schwarze Katz wine sold so well that wines from this vineyard in Zell have maintained the name since. But Moselland was the first and only winery to actually market their wine in a black, cat shaped bottle! Now there are many colors, finishes for holidays, and a special pink bottle to raise funds and awareness for Breast Cancer Research.
It goes well with salads, chicken dishes and Asian cuisine, and can of course be enjoyed on its own as an easy drinking summer wine or aperitif. Serve well chilled.
