Ultimate Beverage Challenge 87 points - Luscious, tropical, and heady floral aromatics fill the nose. Refreshingly off-dry with a scintillating texture that glides across the tongue with more tropical fruit and orange marmalade. Finishes fruity and tropical with apricot and mango playfully interacting. (Jun 2016)
Winemaker's Notes: "The Riesling grape is considered by many to be the finest of German grape varieties, and Blue Nun's Riesling uses them to superb effect. It's fragrant, fruity, crisp and lively. Good with white meats and fish. Once again, versatile enough to go with most things. And because it's a very light, refreshing wine, you can enjoy it as an aperitif. Or drink it anytime you like."
|Wine maker notes
|There is almost no other wine that is so defining for German white wine like the Riesling. With its racy acidity and a true fire-work of aromas the Riesling has become the fashionable drink of modern epicures. Cultivated in the Rhine region, the fully ripe, golden grapes are harvested, then de-stemmed and gently pressed. Once in the glass, its intensive aroma points to its noble provenance. On the palate it shines with a slight residual sweetness and fruit acidity full of character.
Excellent with light stews, chicken, vegetables, Asian cuisine and fish dishes.
