Lothar Kettern, Fio 2021 Riesling "Fabelhaft"

Fio’s whimsical labels sometimes belie the seriousness of the wine in the bottle. A case in point is this new “entry level” Mosel Riesling, whose label depicts a characteristically grisly German folk-tale in a series of comic-like panels. But the wine is a purely delicious and classic Mosel, with every virtue on show.
