Three Great Producers - Bruno Rocca, Corte Lavel and Von Hovel / Riesling

We are delighted to welcome Luisa Rocca to the store to show the Bruno Rocca wines from Piemonte. Along side this iconic producer we will have two of the most note worth new producers we’ve seen in some time: Von Hovel of the Mosel and Corte Lavel of Valpolicella. This is an outstanding collection of wines each classically styled and superbly representative of their regions. Bruno Rocca remains an icon and industry leader in Barbaresco, Von Hovel farms the Scharzhofberger vineyard, widely regarded as the greatest in the Mosel Valley, and Corte Lavel produces fresh and elegant Amarone.

 

Riesling

I think that Riesling is indisputably the greatest white wine grape in the world but many people think I am mad. Riesling has its own very distinctive character which varies immensely and excitingly according to exactly where it is grown. Riesling responds rather badly to winemaking tricks. It is happiest when it is just fermented as simply as possible and the pure fermented juice bottled with minimal resort to oak, malolactic fermentation, less stirring and so on.

To me Riesling is great not just because it, like Pinot Noir for example, is so exceptionally good at expressing terroir, but also because it makes white wines that are so good at ageing.  JANCIS ROBINSON

Riesling is grown all over the world but its best results come from the "mean" soils of its spiritual home in the German regions of the Mosel, Nahe, Pfalz, Rheingau and Rheinhessen and parts of Austria. Arguably the best dry examples come from Australia's Clare Valley where the sub-regions of Watervale and Poilsh Hill River deliver some exceptional long-lived wines.
