Delightful. Juicy juicy juicy, and such fun to drink.

About The Wine

Tremendous new vintage of Wittman's everyday drinking Riesling sourced from the 100 Hills (Hugel) around the home town of Westhofen.

A bracing Riesling of immense smashability with great acidity to lift the cavalcade of tropical fruit and citrus flavour hits - peach, mandarin, lime and grapefruit all seem to interplay.

A wine for not for contemplation but for joyful consumption.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The fertile Rheinhessen hill country is our home. Here the vines grow on the sunny hills around Westhofen for our fresh, juicy varietal wines.

Already in the fragrance it is reminiscent of fresh aromas of apple, grapefruit and mandarin, followed of yeasty notes and sea buckthorn. Elegant with a slight play of acidity and minerality, it is great on the palate Length and taste of yellow fruit. An indispensable Riesling for every day! Ideal with seasonal salads, young vegetables and white meat.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Juicy fruit, mint, a subtle mineral/petrol note. It bursts with flavour, peach, citrus, tropical, juicy acidity, cumquat jelly and what you might call ‘botrytis-like acidity’, such is its playful intensity and sweetness, powdery texture, lime cordial and a tight and lively finish. Delightful. Juicy juicy juicy, and such fun to drink." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

    Not bad but not as great as i would expect of a Hugel Riesling

    Elegant, but lacking in character and complexity.

    Amazing value

    Great quality Riesling, nice and ripe style with some tropical and stone fruit character. If there is any residual sugar it's very well balanced with acid. Amazing value.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you.
