Mulheimer Sonnenlay Riesling 'Zeppelin' label, Richter 12 Bottle Case 75cl
Adorned with a 1920s' art deco piece from artist Hans Schlösser, the Zeppelin’s label serves as a reminder of how popular German Riesling was in the beginning half of the twentieth century. In fact, in the Zeppelin’s heyday, Mülheimer Sonnenlay Riesling was the wine most often poured on grand transatlantic flights. With flappers, fine suits and a penchant for Mosel Riesling it’s fair to say those 20s folk had good taste.
With a clean and pure structure with defined flavours of apple, tinned apricot, wax and honey with a refreshing minerality on the finish, we could all take a leaf out of the 20’s book.
