As part of our month long celebration of Germany's most important grape variety we've put together three of our favourite dry to off-dry Rieslings. These are wines which offer a lot of zesty refreshment and fruit flavour and would appeal to fans of Albarino and Vinho Verde. Whether you already love Riesling or are looking to discover this grape, this set is a great choice.
"This trio is perfect for summer drinking. These wines are dry, zesty and super refreshing. The Deep Roots is racy and fresh, the Hanewald is riper and fruity while the Axel Pauly is richer and beautifully balanced. They work well with spicy foods and zingy marinades too."
A superb dry Riesling from Germany that delivers aromas of fresh green apple and pear. A racy acidity that makes your mouth water and keeps you wanting more. This wine makes a great aperitif or freshener between courses but can be equally enjoyed on its own on a hot summers day.
This is a great introduction to the wines of the Mosel. Generations' Riesling was harvested from the family's steeply sloping vineyard in Lieser. This is an off-dry style white. Fresh hay aromas mingle with lemon citrus, pear and melon fruits. The sweetness and high acidity are well balanced, with a dry finish. On the palate, the wine is tangy, with subtle fruits and a hint of minerality.
This would be delicious with a slightly spicy thai stir-fry.
