Mo-Rhe-Na is a trade export body representing wine estates, their cellars and great vineyards from all mayor German wine growing regions and takes its name from the Mo(sel), Rhe(in) and Na(he) regions.
They were presenting just two wines - predictably enough a Riesling, Germany's signature grape, but more unusually a Dornfelder, a minor, light early-ripening red variety.
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, the Austrians must be reciprocating the flattery as they gave this a Gold Medal at the 2009 AWC in Vienna.
The second wine, a red, had a nose of strawberries and raspberries, and was very smooth and rich. Low in tannins it would make an easy, light summer red - if only the summers were more predictable in this country. It was certainly enjoyable, but with a guide price of £12 - £15 it is unlikely to win any awards for value.
2008 Riesling Spaetlese dry "Edesheimer Ordensgut" guide price £13.40
2009 Dornfelder dry - barrique "Edesheimer Ordensgut" guide price £12 - £15.
