Clare v Germany Top 5 Rieslings

Recently Saturday, in the interest of ‘science’ we put on a Riesling focused tasting.  Australia’s Clare Valley alongside a tidy selection from Germany.

Here are 5 of the best performing wines of the day, both for our palates and in terms of sales.

Four are bone dry and two off-dry (Max Ferd. Richter & Naked Run Der Zweite). The latter two proving that balance is key to sweetness levels, they are both great wines for summer and some tempura fried school prawns.

It’s also worth mentioning that since our tasting the 2019 Clos Clare won the National Wine Show Trophy for best Riesling.
