This is a classic and great quality Riesling from Hanewald-Schwerdt. Dominant flavours of tropical fruit, peaches, apples, pear and a touch of lemon. A very elegant and harmonious wine with a touch of sweetness complimented beautifully by just the right amount of acidity.
Made using 100% Riesling grapes in the Rheingau region of Germany, this is a delicious semi-sweet wine with floral hints and balanced acidity often associated with Riesling. This will be delicious when matched with Asian inspired, spicy dishes.
The family owned and operated Hanewald-Schwerdt estate was founded in 1955 in Leistadt. The wine represents well the terroir of the are, surrounded by limestone cliffs. A lovely, dry Riesling delivering cool, mineral aromas of citrus fruits. Juicy, powerful and yet finely fruity.
A family owned and operated estate, founded in 1955. Today, cousins Thomas Hanewald and Stephen Schwerdt have become highly rated producers of Riesling and Pinot Noir. The terroir is characterised by a unique limestone reef which dominates all the sites around Leistadt. Balancing strawberry and cherry flavours with good minerality, this is a delicious, approachable red.
