Winemaker's Notes

The Mülheim Sonnenlay (translates: Sunshine and slatestone) is a steep single vineyard facing southwest-west with slate stone and clay loom soil. The wine from this hill was successfully served in the 1920s and 1930s on board of the luxurious restaurant on the airship “Graf Zeppelin”. To commemorate that privilege Hans Schlösser, a local artist painter and member of the famous “Bauhaus”-movement designed the art deco label incorporating the Zeppelin. That label has been proudly used since then.
 
Smells apple, citrus and slate stone. Clean and pure structure; great mineral texture and density with rich mouth-filling flavors of orchard fruits and juicy layers. Shows as well zesty and spicy refreshing style. Well balanced structure, animating and the elegant fruit acid finishes with great length.
 
Drink as an aperitif, with fish, seafood, kimchi, vegetable dishes, white meat plates; ideal wine by the glass!
