The most important grape variety in Germany is Riesling. Internationally acclaimed, these wines are exciting and have been experiencing a true worldwide renaissance in recent years.
From the slopes of the Rhone-valley, Syrah has conquered many other places, in particular Australian wine regions where it is known as Shiraz.
In Riesling, aromas of peach and green apple dominate and depending on the terroir, notes of flint and slate can be detected. Clean and crisp without being overpowering, a Riesling wine is the perfect one to relax with.
A dark, intense colour with a full-bodied and complex aroma – this is typical Syrah. Notes of black currant, plum and black pepper are present in these warming red wines.
Why they match
Both grape varieties are perfect for the quiet times in our lives. Both are easy drinking and mellow, so pour yourself a glass of either our crisp Burg Layer Riesling or the fabulous Mount Leonard red, take a deep breath and relax.
