Deliciously bright and zipping Riesling from the hugely talented Stefan Braunewell. Still some spritzy energy - but incredibly sleek texture too. This is a terrific example - a super feel and really joyful energy. L&S (Jan 2019)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Tense with some perceptible sweetness and a cocktail of grapefruit juice and stones – not unlike a Scheurebe! Long and dense. Drinking range: 2018 - 2023 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - 2018)

Correct and dense with the limestone peeking through. Bone dry and a bit uncompromising at the moment. Drinking range: 2018 - 2022 Rating: 16+ Jancis Robinson MW OBE - 2017)

Delicious, full-throttle, Rheinhessen Riesling with masses of zesty lime twist and green apple crunch.Jane MacQuitty, The Times(Jul 2017)

We rated the previous vintage of this elegant dry Riesling 90 points and this latest release may well reach the same level with three to six more months in the bottle for its citrusy aromatics and spritz fresh peachy fruit whose limey trail of acidity leaves a refreshingly dry, summer taste in the mouth. Like its predecessor, this one also has legs. Rating: 89 The Wine Gang - 2017)

Weingut Braunewell

François Breiniville fled 17th Century France's Huguenot persecution to settle in Essenheim, just south west of Mainz. It took until the 1960's for Adam Braunewell to start bottling the wines from his family's vineyards and, today, he helps his children and grandchildren run this excellent estate and tend their flagship vineyards of Blume and Teufelspfad (the Devil's path!)
