Browse by Grape - Riesling
A candidate for the most underrated variety in the wine world today. Usually associated with Germany and Alsace this much abused grape can make all manner of white wine, from sparkling to dessert. Its character can vary from fresh apple to petrol-like aromas and flavours. Its continued re-emergence is due to the wine public's realisation of its quality which had long been doubted mainly due to the influx of (often non-Riesling related) German wines of questionable quality. Now becoming a major variety in New Zealand and Australia.
