There’s something to be said about pretty packaging. While it’s never smart to judge a book, or wine, by its cover, doing so might just lead to an interesting and new experience.
Mosel Riesling Qualitätswein is a German-made wine in a sleek cat bottle. That’s right, a cat-shaped bottle. This statuesque glassware will look glorious in any collection.
The Riesling is mostly clear but has a gentle yellow tint to it. The scent offers a hint of citrus, which somehow gives it a feeling of lightness. The tip is sweet and mild with a hint of peach mixed in with the citrus flavor. As the sip eases towards the back of the mouth, the citrus quality gradually takes over, until it dominates the flavor at the back of the throat. There isn’t much of an aftertaste — but that’s way better than having an overpowering one, so count it as a plus.
The flavors are easier to pick out when the wine is chilled, making it a more involved and enjoyable experience. However, it doesn’t taste bad at room temperature either. Being light as it is, the Riesling pairs well with salads, fish and chicken. It’s also tasty on its own, so cheers, and drink up.
