Winerie

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.


Vintage report

Grapes in the Mosel looked picture-perfect at harvest! Volume estimates were satisfying, especially as there had been roughly a third less the previous year. Drought and heat as well as the fear of hailstorms and heavy rain had kept growers anxious. Grape picking started in August for the early-ripening varieties and mid-September for Riesling. The rain in September, thanks to the cool nights did not lead to rot, increased the yield and contributed to the remarkable harvest volumes. The Mosel wines of 2018 are characterized by their rich aroma, harmonious structure with moderate acidity levels and elegant, juicy fruit.
