Riesling

Riesling has been a highly recommended grape variety since as long ago as the 16th century and is grown in many areas across the world. The region surounding Niederkirchen is one of Germany's very finest Riesling growing areas. The Riesling vine produces small to medium-sized grapes, which grow densely and are green-yellow in colour with black dots. They are fruity, juicy and acidic, becoming spicy and sweet when fully mature.

The wine

The preferred wines produced from the grape variety are dry and semi-dry with magnificent fruity acids. Riesling goes well with light dishes and fish. Late harvests and older wines are also a good accompaniment to stronger tasting foods. The specialist sweet Rieslings are served as an aperitif or as dessert wines.

Late Burgundy

Known as the "king of red wines", Burgundy is a significant wine right across Europe. Its grapes have been cultivated since Roman times. The vines produce small to medium-sized round and strongly perfumed grapes which are dark blue in colour and thin-skinned. The taste is juicy, fruity, sweet and noticably acidic. Burgundy grapes mature very late.

The wine

Burgundy wines are a deep ruby red with translucent brown hues. Their taste is fully formed and velvety with a deep body and high alcohol content. The bouquet is reminiscent of bitter almonds and is further characterised by maturity and fruity acid. The fruit of young wines recall the taste of blackberries. As the wines age, a nutty taste with a gentle bitter hue takes over. Burgundy wines go well with strong tasting roast meat, game and cheese.
