According to legend, three wine merchants came to the town of Zell (in Germany) to buy wine. They were about to sample out of a barrel when a black cat suddenly jumped on it, arched its back, and swiped its paw at anyone who approached it. The wine merchants chose the barrel guarded by the cat thinking it held the best wine. Zeller Schwarze Katz wine sold so well that wines from this vineyard in Zell have maintained the name since. But Moselland was the first and only winery to actually market their wine in a black, cat shaped bottle!
The wine is full flavored with pear and citrus aromas. Stimulating on the palate, as well as fresh and fruity. It has a nice sweetness balanced with the typical crisp Riesling acidity. It ideally pairs with lighter or spicy cuisine or simply on its own.
