Germany is the home of Riesling, producing wines in a wide range of styles that span everything from light-bodied, dry and refreshing to the full range of sweetness. Most grapes are sourced from the areas of Mosel, Rheingau and Pfalz.

Kabinett Rieslings are light in body, with high acidity and notes of apple and grape, with typically medium sweetness and light alcohol. Late-harvested, or Spätlese, Rieslings have more body, with notes of pineapple and lemon. Auslese Rieslings have even more body and exotic fruit notes, and can really no longer be considered a dry wine.

Trokenbeerenauslese Rieslings are sweet wines made from grapes affected by noble rot to develop particular characteristic flavours.

Featured Growers

Riesling QBA Alte Reben

Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt
Mosel, Germany

Riesling 100%

A wine with a very generous personality. Small yellow fruits such as mirabelle and greengage on the nose, along with delicate hints of citrus zest and lemon grass. This riesling is succulent but still has fine acidity.

ABV 12.0%

RK Riesling

Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt
Mosel, Germany

Riesling 100%

The delectable aromas of several stone fruits combine to create a harmonious bouquet: slightly tart apple, like Braeburn or Rubinette; green pear, like Alexander Lucas; and a bit of quince, and the smell of wet slate. On the palate, it is mouth-filling and powerful but not plump. Long, appealing finish.

ABV 10.5%
