ELZ! Riesling 2015
Elz! started off as a University project by 4 students at the University of Geisenheim in Germany. They were tasked with creating a wine brand. Germany is not exactly known for its marketing genius when it comes to wine and German wine labels can be very serious looking and hard to understand. The four friends wanted to create a brand from a single vineyard in the Mosel but package it in a fun and approachable way. One of the four students parents conveniently own a winery in the Mosel and so the project was born. It was a competition and within the school and they were the winners. As it happens one of the 4 students is Christina's brother, of one of our members of staff. She happened to drink a few bottles when she was visiting him at the Mosel and the rest is history as they say.
Limey, zippy green apple and racy acidity with just a touch of sweetness. Classic elegance and lightness of touch with that perfect balance of sweetness and acid the region is known for.
ABV : 12,5%
