    Think you know Riesling – think again!

    A fresh look at the Riesling Wines of Dönnhoff 

    "By The Glass" Event Saturday 10 August 5.30pm – 8.00pm


    “Great Riesling is like a very large orchestra playing very quietly” Helmut Dönnhoff


    We invite you to join us on the evening of the 10th August from 5.30pm until 8.00pm for a by-the-glass event of Donnhoff wines

    Riesling is one of the four noble white grape varieties but definitely the most underrated. In the 1960s and ‘70s brands such as “Blue Nun” and “Black Tower” dominated the market and that super sweet and flabby flavour profile became associated with Riesling. In fact though it can be sometimes lusciously sweet it can also be bone dry, light or full bodied, delicate or powerful and everything in between.


    “On the palate, Riesling is meant to move — to shimmer; to surge, to burst, to dance, to arc, to soar. Riesling has a rare trait – velocity. Of all varietals, it is the most kinetic and alive.” Karen MacNeil “The Wine Bible”
