As some of the first wines ever imported by Barrels & Bottles back in the 1970’s the von Shleinitz rage from the Mosel valley in Germany have always been firm favorites with staff and customers alike .
Today we were lucky enough to receive a visit from Konrad Hahn himself, the wine maker and family owner of the von Shleinitz estate . To celebrate his arrival a three course wine club dinner was organized to complement the new vintages of the awesome von Shleinitz Riesling’s. Starting with the Slatestone Dry Riesling and moving up to the estate bottle Kabinett Riesling we then moved on to the flag ship “Cara” (named after Konrad’s daughter ) Ppatlese Trocken Riesling. With dessert we favored the more luscious sweet wines from the Auslese Riesling on to the Beerenauslese and the Eiswein .
In each bottle you could taste that these wines where very well made and to meet the man that made them was a privilege. The von Schleinitz range of wines prove consistent and continue to be firm favorites at Barrels & Bottles.Share and Enjoy:
