Interesting Points: It’s unusual to find Riesling with this somewhat muted nose. If you like aged Riesling but don’t like the classic petrol note, this wine is for you. Be careful when drinking this wine as you can easily drink a bottle very quickly so I suggest you get 2 bottles. Make sure you don’t over chill it to get the most out of what this wine has to offer.

Drink two bottles on its own or pair it with jerk pork & chicken.
