Zeller Schwarze Katz is one of the most memorable vineyard names in the Mosel area. The legend about the black cat, that launched a famous wine in Germany is unique. In 1863, two wine merchants decided their wine purchase trough a black cat, which crept into the cellar and leaped up onto one of the barrels. Today a black basalt fountain with a black cat (= Schwarze Katze) on top is the trademark of the wines in Zell.
When vintners from the Mosel speak of an “envious autumn”, they describe the very different distribution of yields and quality within the growing region. It was the third year in a row that was marked by prolonged drought. One advantage of the dry season this year was that the Mosel winemakers had few problems with diseases in the vineyards. You could thus harvest perfectly healthy grapes with moderate acidity. The musts promise very typical Mosel wines with intense aromas and a fruity character.
