Virtue. From renowned German vineyards, this Riesling is captivating and complex. Crisp flavours of honey, peach, and lemon finish with a lingering minerality.

Riesling is an aromatic white wine grape variety that originated in the Rhine region of Germany, where it is still the most planted grape variety, grown throughout the country. In Germany’s most famous winemaking region, the Mosel, it makes up a whopping 60% of total plantings. While it is now also grown in almost every cool wine making region in the world, German Rieslings are still considered amongst the finest. In the best vintages, German Rieslings are prized by wine collectors the world over. Riesling typically displays flowery, almost perfumed, aromas as well as high acidity. Because of this hallmark acidity, it can be used to make dry, semi-sweet and sweet wines.
