Koster Wolf Riesling Kabinett Halbtrocken Flonheimer Rothenpfad is a mineral-scented off-dry Riesling from Germany's Rheinhessen region. Still in its youth, this fine Riesling shows flinty, lime aromas, with a rounded yet refreshing palate. This is above all a food wine; a perfect partner for Thai cusine or fish cooked in rich sauces.
The wonderful balance between sugar and acidity found in this wine, makes it a good example of the wines from the Nahe region. A young, dry, streamlined and fruity wine with just a hint of refreshing spritz on the palate.
Villa Gutenberg Riesling Kabinett Johannisberger Erntebringer, from Germany's Rheingau region, is the best Qualitatswein for this price that we have tasted. It is a medium-dry delicate Riesling with vibrant aromas of steely lime, flowers and a hint of peach.
This 100% Scheurebe wine is enticingly fragrant, with irresistibly intense aromas. Notes of mandarin and blood orange combine with delicate spicy flavours. This is refreshingly crisp on the palate, with a lifted, aromatic finish.
Pieroth Meister's Rosé is a sparkling muscat with aromas of delicate fruit and sweet spices. The taste initially explodes with bubbles, freshness and fruity sweetness, and at the end there is a pleasant sweetness balanced with nutmeg.
Pieroth Blue Mild Sekt is a sparkling riesling, bright and light with generous bubbles. Subtle floral aromas mingle with a slight yeastiness that makes the wine both approachable and satisfying, then finishes with a touch of honey and pear.
