The month of July pays tribute to the world’s most elegant varietal – Riesling – the Queen of the Grapes! Multi-award winning wine merchant, The WineBarn, recommends three deliciously diverse Rieslings from different wine making regions of Germany, so you can experience the full spectrum of what this fruity style of wine has to offer – from soft sweetness to dry minerality.

Göttelmann
2020 Münsterer Riesling “Vom Schiefer” off-dry
Nahe
£15.50 per bottle

Fresh and fruity, this off-dry Riesling has aromas of peppermint and kiwi. The aftertaste is long lasting, whilst the fruity acidity is perfectly balanced by the soft sweetness. Due to this sweetness, this wine pairs best with Asian food, poultry and noodle dishes.

Allendorf
2019 Save Water Drink Riesling dry
Rheingau
£13.35 per bottle

This delightfully fresh Riesling has aromas of fresh grass, pineapple and apricots. Its harmonious, fruity taste is followed with a soft, racy finish. This Riesling is the perfect accompaniment to fish, asparagus and veal.

Aldinger
2020 Rebhuhn Riesling QbA dry
Württemberg
£14.35 per bottle

A crisp Riesling with fresh aromas of tangerine and orange-blossom, as well as hints of Mirabelle plums. This dry white wine has a fresh and animated acidity with a mineralic aftertaste. A perfect everyday wine. The ideal companion for sweet dishes and intense blue cheeses.
