At one of our recent online tastings, we did a poll of those present to ask what they’d like to see us feature in forthcoming events. Would it be Italian whites? Or Pinot Noir? Nope. Top of the pile was Riesling.
“Riesling is a star and…one of my great wine heroes,” says Jancis Robinson MW OBE, the Grande Dame of wine writing. Here’s your chance to see why she and many other lovers get so excited about Riesling. We’re going to dry a couple of German wines, one dry, one not-so-dry, to see just how versatile the grape can be. And we’re also going to compare them with an example of the grape from the other side of the world in Australia, where – thanks in no small part to an influx of Germans in the 19th century – Riesling thrives.
