Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.
Terry Theise has said of the Schneider wines, "amazingly aromatic...can be the most hauntingly, intricately perfumed wines I have ever tasted." This Kabinett is bursting with ripe fruit, vivid minerality and a great, food-friendly acidity.
The Nahe is sandwiched between the much more famed Mosel and Rhein regions of Germany's southern wine country. A tributary of the Mosel, the Nahe river benefits by having many sub-tributaries of its own, thus resulting in lots of little slopes ideal for grape growing. Also making it ideal is the mix of soil types, from the softer Mosel to the more minerally Rhein, which gives the Nahe wines an unrivaled complexity. It is for this reason that many great young winemakers are flourishing here.
