Organic Riesling Trocken Rheinhessen0,75l WhiteBio€11.20 €9.26Jochen Dreissigacker is justifiably proud of his 2016 wines. Based in the Rheinhessen, he farms organically in the region of Bechtheim. This Riesling is hand harvested and fermented at cool temperatures to preserve the natural purity and fruitiness. It has lovely, crunchy, green apple fruit and acidity, with good concentration which makes itself felt on the palate. This is an elegant, very well balanced with great stone fruit flavours. Serve with salads, fish and vegetable dishes.
