With less than one tenth of the vineyard surface of Spain, France or Italy, Germany is the 8th largest wine producer in the world and while primarily a white wine country, red wine production is on the rise.
Riesling is the most widely planted white grape and it produces aromatic, fruity and elegant white wines that range from very crisp and dry to well-balanced, sweet and of enormous aromatic concentration. Spätburgunder, the domestic name for Pinot Noir, is the most common red grape.
Piesporter, Schmitt Sohne, 2015
Piesporter Michelsberg QbA is a beautifully fragrant, medium-bodied wine with upfront fruit that continues to develop on the palate. Made from Riesling and Müller-Thurgau grapes, hints of peaches and green apples are balanced perfectly with crisp acidity to provide a clean and fresh finish. Light enough to enjoy as an aperitif or enjoy with meat and seafood dishes.Learn More£7.00
