"The grapes are picked from vines grown in predominantly slate soils on steep slopes throughout the Mosel Saar Ruwer valleys. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel, resulting in a crisp, off-dry style Riesling.
Fragrant aromas of white peach, nectarine and Bosc pear backed by pastoral scents
of hay or straw. The wine has a touch of sweetness backed by refreshing acidity.
The Mosel River winds its way northeast from the Vosges mountains of France until it joins Germany’s Rhine. Above this twisting waterway is a magnificent patchwork of vineyards and ancient castles that cling to steep, verdant hillsides. To be qualified as “steep
slopes” 100% of the fruit must come from classified vineyards which have an incline of at least 30%. In this area of Mosel, the average incline of vineyards is 45%" ~ Winery notes.
90+ Ninety Plus CellarsView all from 90+ Ninety Plus Cellars
90+ Cellars was created because we like drinking great wine anytime we want. We wanted an everyday "go to" wine that tasted like one usually reserved for special occasions, a delicious wine that we could open any night of the week or whenever friends arrived. Unfortunately, that wine didn't exist or just took too much time to find.
So, in the spring of 2009, armed with a copy of the latest Wine Spectator, Kevin called and emailed wineries with a history of high ratings and asked if they had wine for sale. Some told him to get lost, others simply ignored him, but in the end, he found a handful of willing wineries. The plan was this: They put the 90+ Cellars label on their wine, and we sell it for less.
You may recall that the economy wasn't in the best shape in 2009. Demand for wines priced more than $20 a bottle plummeted and inventories were piling up. Rather than discount their wine and erode the value of their brand, wineries were willing to part with it for a reduced price.
That summer 90+ Cellars was born. Since then, it's been our goal to seek out, bottle and deliver fine wine that costs you less money. The landscape has changed, but our mission has not. We partner with highly respected wineries around the globe to provide you with wine that will impress your friends and keep more dollars in your pocket.
Saturday night taste. Tuesday night price.
That's 90+ Cellars.
