Marmann-Schneider is a family-run winery in the Mosel valley, close to Trier. Its location is in the middle of the oldest wine growing area in Germany. Around 2000 years ago, the Romans brought wine to this part of Germany. Wendelin Schneider and his son in law, Dirk Marmann, who joined in 2001, are excellent wine makers. They have specialized in Riesling, which grows at the steep slopes of the Mosel valley in order to get maximum sun exposure.
|2009 Riesling Qualitätswein feinherb
A basic Riesling made in a light-bodied and casual drinking style yet retains all the aromas we enjoy from a German wine. The perfect casual afternoon drink with just a touch of sweetness. Excellent also as an aperitif or wedding wine.
|2009 Osanner Kirchlay Riesling Spätlese feinherb
Melons and lemons on the nose. This has just a touch of sweetness which adds some tension on the medium-bodied palate. Good purity and decent finish. More robust than the previous wine. An easy drink to go with lightly flavored Asian dishes or simply by itself.
