Lawson’s Dry Hills Reisling 2016

Enough of heavy red wines! Summer is almost here, which is the perfect excuse to go back to the white wines I so love.

I’m back on one of my many UK trips and whilst in my favourite local pub, The Lion and Lamb, the proprietor and fellow wine lover, Lawrence, called me over to tell me about a new Reisling he’d recently stocked. On a previous visit Lawrence had already re acquainted me with the Riesling wines. These modern, dry, refreshing versions are nothing like the sweet varieties we used to be served in the 70s and 80s.

Lawrence has an uncanny knack for choosing wines I like, so when he tells me it’s a good wine I listen. Bless him, he did not let me down this time either. This wine is some of my favourite flavours in a glass. It’s delicious!

This is a pale to medium yellow colour with a heavenly aroma. Very aromatic with lime, Jazmine and green apple. Jazmine is my favourite scent and lime is always better than lemon in my book.

More importantly it delivered on flavour tasting both floral and lime, with perhaps a hint of tropical along with the fresh green apple. It’s a dry refreshing wine, but seems sweeter as it fills the mouth flavour and lingers.

This has become my new favourite tipple at the Lion and Lamb.
