2018 Winter, Riesling Trocken, Rheinhessen, Germany
£16 £13.50 per bottle
‘Trocken’ means ‘dry’ and this is a genuinely keen and precise Riesling with a modern and invigorating outlook. Crunchy acidity underpins the lime juice theme, so this wine is dry and raspy on the finish unlike so many trockens out there that seem to load fruit juice notes into the mid-palate, meaning the wines end up stalling on the finish. Winter is designed for ultra-modern cuisine – sushi and sashimi, Thai fresh spring rolls, Pad Thai with loads of lime juice squeezed on top, coconut milk themed curries and spicy squid and prawn dishes. This is a vital wine in your fridge!
