Shades of Blue is an affordable luxury for everyday celebrations, crafted from grapes sourced from Germany’s über-prestigious Mosel region. The wines from this region are generally lighter in alcohol and easy to drink, fresh, fruity and lightly sweet. The growing season in the Mosel is long. Harvest generally takes place in late fall, ensuring the grapes have a long time to reach optimal ripeness. After harvest, the grapes are pressed and fermented slowly in temperature controlled tanks, which preserves the delicate fruit. Following fermentation the wines are kept in stainless steel tanks and bottled right away; they are ready to drink when young. Before opening Shades of Blue, please chill 49-55° to ensure optimal enjoyment.
