The Oddbins Take

German Riesling is perhaps the wine above all others that has been modernised in recent years. It wasn't even particularly long ago that nearly all quality examples would have some sweetness, be labelled with a Prädikat (traditional ripeness level designation) and with a label so classically Teutonic it demands a chorus of "the hills are alive with the smell of bratwurst." Not that we dislike this style, some of the finest wines in the world fall into this category. However, they do look a little anachronistic when you put them side by side with a wine such as Weingut Walldorf.


When you first take in this bottle it strikes you that this is a modern German; no more beer halls, lederhosen or ruthless efficiency, this is a bottle for those who attend secret 24-hour discotechs in Berlin, dressed in Hugo Boss and refer to their mobile as "mein handy!" The wine itself is no less avantgarde; dry as a bone, the wine is piercingly refreshing with classic Riesling characters of lime zest, nectarine, beeswax and a flinty minerality, however significant skin maceration and spontaneous fermentation in German oak gives this wine a mouthfeel and weight that many would not associate with this grape.
