Allendorf 2014 Winkler Hasensprung Red Riesling Dry

Regular price £18.44

This is the first vineyard of Red Riesling in over 60 years. They bought 100 vines from Geisenheim, but grafting them was very difficult and they lost 90% of the first lot. They persevered, however. The wine is so unusual. Smells of parma-violet dust and incense. Very unlike Riesling! Ginger and tea leaves and honey with rapier-like acidity. Wild and earthy with sweet mandarin citrus at the core. (Written by Tamlyn Currin – JancisRobinson.com)
