Walt Riesling 2022, Pfalz, Germany

Delicious medium dry and lots of fruit character.

£10.75

Tasting Notes - An elegant, off-dry, fruity Riesling. This comes from the Pfalz which lies just over the border from Alsace and where the wines produced often show a similar note of spiciness. Lovely pear and stone fruits with a whiff of elderflower and refreshing apple crispness.

Blend - Riesling 100%

Producer - One hundred and thirty years ago, 1897, in Wiesbaden, the firm Walter S. Siegel GmbH was started by its eponymous founder. Having acquired vineyards in Westhofen in Rheinhessen, the company was formed to sell his own wines, as well as various prestigious estates in other regions. In 1937 Herr Siegel’s son, Hans, formed Walter S. Siegel Ltd., in London with England Test Cricketer Ian Peebles through which they imported wines from Germany and France. With a doff-of-the-cap to the Siegel name, this Riesling was born. Situated to the south-east of Frankfurt, the region produces white and red wines, contrary to the likes of the Mosel and the Rhine regions which are very much white wine country. With the region sheltered by the Haardt mountains to the west, the climate is very similar to that of it’s southerly neighbour Alsace.

Alcohol percentage – 11%
