Bischöflich, DOM, Dry Riesling, 2018, Mosel, Germany


German wine fell out of fashion in the UK around the 90s. Prior to that it was associated with cheap, sweet, mass produced Rieslings across the UK (Blue Nun, anyone?). This has changed.

We are now learning to enjoy German wines again, but increasingly dry in style (known as Trocken), higher quality, and appealing to modern tastes. Sweet-style German wines are still to the go-to in Germany, however they are made to be world class, expensive, and reflect ancient tradition. The market has matured, and now we are seeing affordable quality dry Riesling's becoming quite fashionable and being made by many producers. They are versatile, fresh, and clean.

This a dry style Riesling. It shows everything new German wine is... dry, elegant, and open. Delicately floral with citrus and light flinty aromas. The palate is pure with green apple, refreshing citrus acidity, stony minerality and good length.
