Weingut Von Winning Riesling, 2017, Pfalz, Germany
£19.75 (inc VAT)
Could've named it Von Epic or Von Party in my Mouth. Winning hearts & minds.
This is off-dry Riesling at its purest best. Lemon, lime, peach, spice, dried herbs and blossom, it’s touch of sweetness and juicy fruit is expertly balanced by a salty, sea wind freshness. The name Von Winning says it all. It would only be a more fitting if this were called Von Epic, Von Awesome or Von Party in my Mouth.
Humble heroes. From their intriguing (and award-winning) Rieslings to their groundbreaking Pinot Noirs, we love every wine and winemaker from this family-run estate. Founded in 1849 by Dr. Deinhard, developed by his son-in-law Leopold von Winning in 1907, the estate was revived in 2007 by Achim Niederberger, together with the Bassermann-Jordan and von Buhl properties. Tragically Herr Niederberger died in 2013, and his wife Jana now steers the ship. No herbicides, no synthetic fertilisers, no copper, no filtering and no fining. Every bottle is a winner.
