Weingut Winter Riesling
Riesling (pronounced Reese-ling) is one of the most misunderstood grape varieties, yet it is also one of the finest in the world. Perhaps a victim of its own diversity, it can make bone dry razor-sharp wines as well as unctuous, honeyed nectar-like elixirs and everything in between. Stefan Winter crafts his wines in the beautiful Rheinhessen region, and this is certainly on the razor-sharp, fresh end of the spectrum. Imagine crunching into a fresh granny smith apple on a late September morning in a dewy orchard - then add a little spice, peach and a touch of kerosene (weird but true!) and there you have it.
Our house wine selection has been curated by Alistair Cooper, Master of Wine. We're big believers that the importance of great wine when it comes to great cheese cannot be understated, and as such have selected these wines after hours and hours of scrutiny (and fun), to be all rounders for pairing with our cheese.
