Tasting notes:
'The 2018 Riesling Fabelhaft offers a clear, refined, subtle, spring-like Riesling bouquet with discreet flinty notes intertwined with natural fruit and a fine sur lie aroma. Delicate and juicy on the palate, with a fine grip and charmingly delicate texture, this is a pleasant light Mosel Riesling that dinks beautifully today. Drink 2020 - 2025.' – Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advoacte, 88/100 (Aug 2020)

Alc: 11%

About Niepoort & Kettern:
Dirk Niepoort is a fifth generation winemaker and a pioneer of table wines in Portugal. His long-standing passion for Mosel wines and Riesling took him to Mosel where he met winemaker, Philip Kettern, of Lothar Kettern. These two men, together with Dirk’s eldest son, Daniel, formed a collaboration which later became known as Fio Wines. Their vineyards lie in the western Mosel village of Piesport. With blue, Devonian slopes and a 30-70% south facing gradient, this amphitheatre is one of the Mosel’s great terroirs.

Producer information The Niepoort family has been creating Port Wines since 1842. Dirk Niepoort, fifth generation, is the head of the business after his father, Rolf's retirement in 2005. Dirk is a pioneer of table wines in Portugal and, as with all Dirk's projects around the world, his focus is on traditionally made wines that offer elegance while showcasing terroir. Dirk 'helped transform the region and the way the world thinks about wine' says Wine & Spirits Magazine about Dirk and his role in the Douro. His wines transcend the extreme heat of the Douro and display great freshness and elegance.
