31 Days of German Riesling!
Join us on an exploration of Germany's best!
Delightful sparkling wine, made from 100% Riesling grapes. Importer tasting notes: Sustainably made and vegan, this fresh and delightfully fruity Sekt that has excellent balance from the crisp acidity. Perfect as an aperitif. "Extra Dry" (which, unhelpfully, actually means slightly sweet...)
Producer tasting notes: Riesling full of character from the steep slopes of the Middle Nahe. The vines grow here on stony, volcanic weathered soils, especially porphyry and melapyr, with shares of slate and quartzite. Hearty, fresh and clear, elegant with stimulating minerality. A wonderful wine for every day with not too much alcohol and very fine acidity. Trocken (dry)
Importer tasting notes: A great dry Riesling, very complex, displaying great, smoky crystallised minerality with a flinty character. Unmistakably Felsenberg. Trocken (dry)
Producer tasting notes: A dry Riesling with crisp acidity and expressive peach and lychee fruit. Classic style of Pfalz Riesling which is a relatively warm region for Germany. Crisp and fresh, with those typical flavours of citrus fruits, minerality and some crunchy green apples. A refreshing dry finish, too. Trocken (dry)
Producer tasting note: A Riesling of exotic guile, with notes of pineapples, lemons and violets. On the palate, ripe acidity keeps the creamy flavours of mango, pineapples and lychee fresh and playful. The finish is both long and lively. Spätlese (medium sweet)
