Riesling – Moselland Arsvitis

Our wine tonight is the 2016 Mosel Riesling from Moselland Arsvitis. This semi-sweet German Riesling is medium bodied and crisp with a aromatic tropical fruit aroma.

The actual bottle is an amazing work of art. A clear window on the front allowing viewing through the perfectly clear wine a painted scene of a rural church with a high steeple nestled along the banks of a flowing river with snow capped mountains standing prominently in the background.
