There is a saying that Rhein Riesling is the king of all wines and the wine of kings. First mentioned in the Rhine region six hundred years ago, it is today one of the most widely cultivated wine grape varieties in the world. The wine's aroma is fresh and gentle, reminiscent of meadow flowers, lime tree flowers, perhaps peach and ripe apricot.
Rhein Riesling perfectly complements roast goose; it is also a great companion for meat dishes, cured meats and a variety of salads and desserts.
