The most delicate pure and pristine wines come from the steep slate sites in Germany. These gorgeous low alcohol Rieslings are some of the longest lived wines in the world. With their off-dry style and incredibly fresh flavours these wines go well with a huge range of foods, and especially all the new ethnic cuisines we now see on the market.
The dry versions from Austria are also compelling. These steely, slightly austere styles require a little more cellar time to really unfurl and develop complexity. Jump in!
