Tasting Notes

The 2019 Winter release has not disappointed. It has all the flavours you usually get with a well made Sauvignon let’s say, but also the minerality and that unique concentration of flavours which Riesling does best. You can enjoy the Winter Riesling by itself, Jancis Robinson has confessed to sipping it in the garden. You may expect me to now say it is heaven with Asian food (as that’s what we always have with Riesling, isn't it?) but with quality seafood it is superb, a bit like your Sauvignon does but better.

More Info

With this in mind let me introduce you to Stefan Winter. He has 2 loves in life; football and winemaking. In fact, after growing up in the Rheinhessen, Stefan started making wine at just 16. Shortly after this he realised Riesling’s elephant in the room; inapproachability in youth and a general lack of anything of quality in-between. He knew it was time for change and boy did he act upon it. Fast forward 30 plus years and Stefan is one of the Rheinhessen's most exciting and brilliant producers. He has set a new bar for younger winemakers to make phenomenal, vibrant and energetic Riesling.
