At last a really good alcohol free wine! This is Riesling with all its variety-specific fruitiness, like peaches, mineral notes and a fresh, lively character. Try it with fish, seafood or white meat, and last but not least – try it simply by itself. This Riesling contains only minute traces of alcohol, it’s a perfect drink for all occasions.
Dry Riesling from the Hanewald-Schwerdt Estate located at the end of a road called Pochelstrabe. A ‘Pochel’ is a cairn built when people were moving stones outside of the vineyards, they are still there and have given their name to this wine.
Golden in colour, this complex wine reveals a seductive nose of quince jelly, acacia honey and candied orange peel. In the mouth, honeyed notes of dried apricot, figs and orange marmalade combine with decent acidity and structure. An unusually high amount of 330 grams of residual sugar create enormous palate weight, structure and length.
Citrus floral notes, complex aromas of sweet jasmine, lemon lime and an underlying nuttiness. The wine is voluptuous and generous, with a zing of lemon sherbet. Balanced and elegant, the palate is softened by the residual sugar which delicately offsets the acidity, giving length and structure. This is a very approachable food-friendly Riesling which can be enjoyed now or over the next five years.
Verus (Latin for “true”) is an exciting new winery founded in 2007 and owned by three friends who now produce some of the most exciting white wines coming out of Slovenia. Intense lime zest and peach varietal bouquet with hints of basil perfume which follows through to the palate showing length and elegance with a lively crisp style and beautiful balance. This wine needs really fresh, delicate flavors to match with it, a simple chicken salad or prawns for example!
Aromas of citrus fruits, lemon and a fine touch of spice and ginger which follow to the palate. Lime zest and white flowers. This wine is lively, medium-bodied with an attractive underlying mineral touch.
The grapes were grown on the deep gravels of the Waipara Valley, hand selected chilled overnight before being whole bunch pressed. Waipara’s dry mid-autumn during 2010 meant botrytis did not develop in the Riesling vineyards. As a result we have lime and lemon zest on the nose with a pure acid to finish.
From our favourite Austrian winery, this top Riesling comes from their highest vineyard (340m above sea level) and is the first single vineyard Riesling in their portfolio; it has been awarded as a winning wine in the 2018 Wine Merchant Top 100 competition.
Fantastic balance, lovely mineral character and spice that will develop as it ages but drinking beautifully now.
