Jump into spring with Riesling from Tesco

With International Riesling Day just around the corner (March 13th), now is the perfect time to explore the delicious bottles Tesco has available this spring

Tesco Rieslings

Lauren Ballantyne, Tesco Wine Product Developer: “Riesling is such an under-appreciated grape, but it deserves to be much more popular because it’s incredibly versatile and can be made in a huge variety of very different styles – from crisp, steely and refreshing, to honeyed and aromatic. The Finest Tingleup Riesling and Finest Mosel Riesling are both elegant, dry styles and work brilliantly with food and particularly Asian-inspired flavours. Fans of sweeter styles meanwhile will enjoy the rounder and fruitier Deinhard Green Label Riesling and Blaumeister Riesling.”

See below for a few recommendations!

Blaumeister Riesling – £5

Blaumeister Riesling is a classic German Riesling, exotic and fruity with balanced flavours of sweet baked apples and zingy citrus with a long bright finish. Best served chilled with fruity deserts or on its own.

Tesco Finest Mosel Steep Slopes Riesling – £7

These aromatic Riesling grapes are hand picked from the extremely steep slopes on the edge of the Mosel River and are grown by a group of quality driven winemakers called ‘Das Blaue Band’ (the blue band referencing the Mosel river). This is a dry style of Riesling to show off the bright elegance and balance of steely minerality and delicate flavours of orchard fruit; lovely with Sushi or creamy cheeses.
