Wine of the week
Natural wines – Wine Scouts Natural organic and biodynamic wines from around the world. Pedro says “This Saturday we will taste an organic, crispy white wine from Weinstadt in Germany. The Andi Knauß Riesling is dry, racy, refreshing and alarmingly drinkable. Expect orange blossom, lime and fresh herbs on the nose with a long steely palate carried by zesty acidity. This is a great introduction to the remarkable nature of Riesling grown on limestone. Andi’s work in the vineyards has been naturally since he started and the winemaking careful and precise. Natural fermentations and minimal sulphur are the norm throughout the range and some wines see no sulphur at all – which is a bit of a rarity in Germany. Come taste!”
