Riesling is Germany’s undisputed star and ranks as one of the world’s greatest and most versatile grapes. German Rieslings are raved about by critics, loved by sommeliers and lauded by other wine authorities. If you still believe all Rieslings are sweet you should tell your supplier to actually visit Germany….
A good wine-maker will marry the Riesling grape’s natural acidity and powerful minerality with its mind-blowing fruity aromas and supple textures and – with patience – will create one of the raciest and zestiest white wines on the planet.
