Satisfying with a slightly flinty edge.
Well, I decided to give this Riesling a try and was very pleasantly surprised with it's slightly flinty edge and almost imperceptible sparkle. Most definitely best enjoyed not too chilled, so that the gentle flavours of the Mosel can come out. TIP: I you serve it straight from the fridge, allow the poured glass to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes, or better still, take the bottle out of the fridge 30 minutes before serving, and then ENJOY. I will certainly be purchasing further bottles.
A Riesling as it should be
Take it from someone who grew up in the Riesling-growing part of Germany: this is a Riesling as it should be. Citric, acidic, fruity and mineral. If you like Sauvignon Blancs, you will probably like good a Riesling too. I'd not serve it too cold, because the flavours come out better at a slightly higher temperature. Just chilled enough to make it refreshing. Or if it is ice-cold, go for a very large serving, and watch how the flavour develops as it warms up a bit in the glass. That's the way to find the sweet spot.
superb. would like to drink ocean of this wine.
Bitter and raw by comparison ...
I much preferred the other Finest Riesling that Tesco stocked until quite recently. This Mosel Steep Slopes Riesling which has suddenly been put in its place, is bitter and raw by comparison. I won't be giving it fridge space.The Finest Rheinhessen Riesling was by far superior.
Another excellent Tesco Finest!
A lovely crisp and refreshing wine. Would highly recommend especially at Christmas.
Good to drink
I first drank this wine in early April and found it to be a pleasent ddrink to have with a meal also I drank it just as a drink which was as good. I think I will buy it again
Good tasting wine
If you like a medium White Wine this is a good bet although I thought a tad dryer than the Riesling Qualitatswein. I would buy again.
Everything I had hoped for
Absolutely loved this wine, a little bit sharp, fruity and just a bit crisp, everything I had hoped for in a Riesling!
Good Quality Riesling
This is an excellent tasting Riesling which I have been buying for some time its well balanced and is good to drink on its own or with a variety of foods........we love Riesling and this wine has that unmistakable Riesling taste not too dry would recommend. Cheers
A perfect reminder of a Riesling we drank in the Mosel valley. Not too sweet and a reasonable alcohol amount. Drink any time.
