German Moselle wines in Northern Cyprus

German Moselle wines in Northern Cyprus

By Horst Gutowski (translated into English by Ralph Kratzer)

A few more weeks and then German Moselle “Riesling” wines will be able to be acquired in Alsancak.

Last Friday I was attending a wine tasting at “Wines Of The World” (on the Alsancak main road towards Lapta after Green Petrol station).

In addition to wines from various other countries, Moselle wines were presented. I had the opportunity, together with friends, to test different wines – as there had been “Quality Wine“, “Cabinet“, “Late Vintage“ and “Selection“.

The “Riesling” wines are from light to moderate intensity and are characterized by a fruity flavour. We found them to be very sleek with a “full body”.

The steep slate-earth slopes of the Moselle region characterize these wines.

According to the shop-owner David Griffiths, prices will be considerably lower than those in South Cyprus.

  1. Sounds good, David keeps brining more and more wines from around the world. Even more coming shortly, so I am told, including some very interesting wines in a bag which you would not expect, (boxes of wines to those who have not heard the expression before). Can’t wait!!!
