Oliver Zeter Riesling, 2019, Qualitätswein Pfalz, Pfalz
Riesling might not be your first choice when it comes to a great white wine, but one bottle of this will change your mind. Riesling is exciting, from the smell of fuel that makes you question if you poured the right thing into your glass, to the taste that confirms you did, and you should pour more. This is fun, refreshing and moreish wine.
The Four Point Lowdown
- Limes, lemons and green apples
- Lean, mean and green
- Pairs well with very spicy dishes
- Perfect for the BYO Thai restaurant of your dreams
About this wine
This is a modern, dry Riesling, who's character comes from a vibrant, racy acidity and lots of fresh lime flavours.
Yes it's dry, no it's nothing like Blue Nun. Oliver Zeter marry tradition and modernity beautifully in their wines, taking a style which some see as old fashioned, and taking it into the 2020s and beyond. This Riesling makes you smack you lips together and pucker up for another sip. Un-bear-lievably good! This wine is also vegan.
