A delicious, cheap German Riesling

Most £6 wines are distinctly dull. Some are nasty. But a few are really delicious, and this is one of them. I’ll be going back to buy some more. Just a shame the summer is over, because this is the ultimate wine for lunch in the sunshine.

Dr L Riesling 2011 Mosel, Germany
8.5% alcohol. Fresh, crisp and quite delicious, with rounded melon and ripe apple fruit, with some grapefruit freshness and just enough sweetness to balance the acidity, giving the wine a seamless texture. Pure and quite lovely. 89/100 (£5.79 Asda)

    Nice wine in my opinion, always seems to deliver memorable moments. Could also say the same about Leitz from the Rheingau.

    25% off six at Tesco. Ends tonight. Just got this for under a fiver along with Dom Perignon 2003 for £82.50 and Phelan Segur ’09 for £22.50.

    Just thought I’d mention it.
