Superstition Riesling-Pinot Blanc Blend
Schmitt Sohne introduces Superstition wine, a medium-dry blend that combines the crisp fruit and minerality of Riesling with the creamy, nutty nuances of Pinot Blanc. Its approachability makes it appealing to wine drinkers interested in food-friendly wines, according to the company. Superstition features an easy-open Stelvin closure and a dramatic neon-green and purple label illustrated with a retro-style black cat (a tribute to their winemaker’s cat).
