ANOTHER NON-OAKED WHITE â€“ and it’s not a Chardonnay.
Alsace Riesling is probable the least understood great white. Their fault, not ours. But Iâ€™m not going into all the reasons for its lack of fame â€“ enjoy this bottle. Youâ€™re sure to say â€œI never thought that dry Riesling could have so much character, so much flavour.â€Â Itâ€™s the last great non-oaked white.Â (Along with all the â€˜great unknownsâ€™ coming out of Italy).
