This Week's Wine - No.5

Walter 2012 Riesling Trocken

Walter Riesling

Reasons for Riesling

In the UK, despite numerous promotions, tastings and festivals, Riesling, from where ever it originates, is still a tough sell.  

The pioneer and still the best source of dry German Rieslings is The Winery, 4 Clifton Road, Maida Vale, London W91SS whence this wine originates.

This 2012 Walter Mosel Riesling Trocken  is vibrant, zesty, citrussy and pure.  Slightly atypical of Mosel Riesling, in that it packs quite a punch making it suitable for a variety of oily fish and creamy dishes. Gratin Dauphinoise with a green salad a la Rick Stein appeals to me right now!
