Fabelhaft means Fabulous, and this vibrant, fruity & fresh Trocken Riesling from the Mosel is a delight. The link to Niepoort is most clear with this zippy and fun Mosel Riesling. Using the German 'Drink Me' name and label design, Fabelhaft joins the family of these fabulous wines. FIO Wines is a fascinating project between 3 great winemakers. Philipp Kettern and Daniel Niepoort are at the helm, whist being guided by the legendary Dirk Niepoort. The team have found a perfect Riesling parcel for their project, planted in terraces on slate with a high quartz content…not unlike the Douro!
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 drinks beautifully today. (Wine Advocate)
