We’re big fans of German wine here at Laithwaite’s Wine HQ and throughout July we’ve been celebrating the 31 Days of German Riesling. German Riesling is the perfect drink to sip on these summer days with tastes of crisp citrus fruits, you’ll find it fantastic and refreshing.
To celebrate this, throughout July we’ve put together our top German Riesling picks in a special mixed case of four different Rieslings from four different producers, saving you up to £22.50. Not only this but the wines are also from three different regions in Germany which gives a lovely representation of the influence terroir can have on a wine.
Here’s a run-down on the wines you’ll receive in our special 31 Days of German Riesling case.
Von Reben Riesling
Von Reben is from a slight bigger producer, and this is a perfect example of the dry, easy going Riesling. It has a zippy lemon and lime characteristic which is perfect for a summer day in the garden.
My Karp Riesling
This is from a tiny producer in the Mosel, who is a one-man-band. The winery has been in his family for generations, and now he runs the whole show on his own. It is a beautiful off-dry Riesling. My Karp is lovely on its own or with something a bit spicy.
Karl May Kabinett Riesling
Karl May Kabinett Riesling is produced by another lovely family run business and is now managed by two brothers. They make a large spectrum of high-quality wines, and there is not one wine in their range which is not delicious!
The Boar Riesling
Another dry Riesling, but The Boar Riesling is from our friends at Leitz. A winery which is so focused on creating pure, high quality wines. This label was created after a funny conversation which we had with Jan, the export manager, in the winery about them having to find new and creatives ways to (peacefully) stop the wild boar stealing their grapes!
You can catch up on our recent discussion with our German Wine Buyer Kirsten and Leitz Winery where they discuss and taste three of the wines produced for us including The Boar Riesling.
