Product Description:

"Nein Lives is an off-dry Riesling from Germany’s famed Mosel Valley. Each vintage has three label designs in a case. Christian Schafer, founder of Schafer-Reichart Selections, is the reason we’re able to enjoy Nein Lives today. He arrived to the U.S. in 2001 and was quickly disappointed by the lack of quality Rieslings available in this country, and quickly began working to import a handful of diverse selections made by people he’s known his entire life. Born and raised in the historic wine-producing town of Bernkastel-Kues in Germany’s Mosel Valley, Christian’s passion for wine had by then developed into a life’s work. “I have great memories of cultivating the famously steep vineyards and crafting the wine with my parents and grandparents – I have spent more than thirty years absorbing all the details of the winemaking process in and around Bernkastel-Kues.” Nein Lives Riesling grapes are sourced from the Middle Mosel along the banks of the Mosel River in the town of Piesporter. The Middle Mosel is considered the best source of diversity, complexity, and quality grapes within the Mosel Valley. There is no top soil here. Broken shale and schist cover the vineyards and impart the clean, complex mineral quality that has come to distinguish Mosel Rieslings. Riesling reflects terroir better than any other varietal in the world." - Importer
