ANOTHER NON-OAKED WHITE – and it’s not a Chardonnay.
Alsace Riesling is probable the least understood great white. Their fault, not ours. But I’m not going into all the reasons for its lack of fame – enjoy this bottle. You’re sure to say “I never thought that dry Riesling could have so much character, so much flavour.” It’s the last great non-oaked white. (Along with all the ‘great unknowns’ coming out of Italy).
