The Dr Loosen Estate is home to some of the best vineyards in Germany. The Mosel valley’s steep, south facing slopes create the perfect climate for Riesling, giving the vines ideal exposure to the sun. The cool climate allows the grapes to ripen slowly while retaining bright acidity.
This dry Riesling from the Dreissigacker family is fruit-forward and perfect as an everyday wine. Vinified in stainless steel for 6 months, the freshness and minerality is well preserved.
Clean, zingy and dangerously drinkable this Auxerrois is a regular go-to for a weekday wine. Auxerrois home is in the Alsace but is also grown in neighbouring Germany and this Pfalz expression has ripe & pure summery flavours with a low alcohol and medium acidity.
Carl Koch's domaine produces minimal intervention wines at incredible value.
Founded in 1833 by pharmacist and inventor Friedrick Koch - the winery has vineyards in some of the highest classified slopes above Oppenheim and Dienheim. This half-dry Riesling is made from old vines located on the boarder between the two towns.
In other regions, it goes by Chasselas, but in Germany it's known as Gutedel. Wonderfully refreshing, it's rather similar to some Chablis or even Muscadet. This is a cracking value white wine made from an unfancied varietal.
Grapes in a glass. Made from the ancient, small berried, golden skinned Muscat variety this is a highly aromatic wine with real finesse and vibrancy. Perfumed aromas and sweet fruit flavours are perfectly counterbalanced with a stony dry finish.
Winemaking has been a part of the May family for over 300 years but it was in 1998 that they went under their own label. Promoting ecological winemaking, their aim is to "taste what nature created" and are certified organic. Their passion is Silvaner, which thrives in the barren, fossilised soils of Franken. Bright and appealing with a freshness and pronounced minerality define this high quality wine that is fantastic value.
A distinctive bottling of Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris) that is full of character and totally unique. Fresh and clean with textural complexity with a blushed coral colour and aromas of pink grapefruit, lemongrass. A wonderful alternative to rosé wine.
Certified organic, dry single vineyard Riesling from one of the premium vineyard sites of Rheinhessen. The wine is vinified and aged in 100% stainless steel, but with 20 hours of destemmed maceration and gentle pressing, which imparts a richness of mouthfeel to an aromatic food friendly wine.
It's officially a German wine but it's actually half French! Weingut Jülg, based in western Pfalz is just stone’s throw from the French border, and half of the estate vineyards are actually in Alsace. Winemaker Johannes has worked tirelessly in the vineyards planting new French clones in the pursuit of making wines with greater balance and complexity.
Lively & fresh with a gentle concentration but this is clearly a cut above a stereotypical Pinot Grigio. Subtle fruit flavours and aromas are accompanied by nuttiness and herbal notes all balanced with a refreshing finish.
Holger Koch's wines are very much German with a French accent. This Weissburgunder is similar to the very best of Alsace Pinot Blanc. Grown on higher elevation, windy terraces atop the Kaiserstuhl hills, that produce pure, perfectly ripe grapes with balanced flavour and texture.
Wittmann is to German winemaking as Mercedes is to car manufacture. They are one of the leading wineries in the Rheinhessen and a pioneer in Germany's new wave, producing biodynamic wines with terroir expression and extreme precision. This wine has a great lemony acidity and a long dry finish with a hint of wet stone.
A perfect introduction to the off-dry styles of Mosel Riesling. The iron-infused, red slate soil produces wines that are structured and complex, with an intense mineral finish. The Treppchen vineyard around the village of Erden is so steep that all vineyard work is carried out by hand.
A 75cl bottle of Oppenheimer Kreuz Riesling Auslese 2018 by Weingut Carl Koch. A white wine from Germany. Made from Riesling.
