50 Degrees Dry Riesling 2019
A fresh, crisp and dry Riesling, perfect for everyday drinking and versatile with food.
Made in the Trocken style, which has very low residual sweetness producing a dry, crisp style of white wine. 50 Degrees has a fresh taste with delicious fruity notes of peaches, green apple and citrus fruits and a long minerally finish. 2019 is a particularly good vintage. It is superb with fresh fish and seafood, and goes really well with Rheingau Riesling frothed soup we are told!
50° Riesling is a lovely fresh and lively dry white, produced under guidance from the famous Schloss Johannisberg estate. This is sourced from the premium Rheingau region, home to more and more dry styles as this style grows in popularity. The name pays homage to the 50th Parallel North which runs through the Reingau. The wine itself is produced to be fresh and enjoyed young, and is a dry easy-to-enjoy style with flavours of ripe peach, green apple and citrus. This is a great introduction to the Riesling grape, and a versatile food-wine.
