Hello, I’m afraid I haven’t been able to try any of our Rieslings yet, but this one should fit the bill. http://www.tesco.com/wine/product/details/default.aspx?N=8130+4294967022&id=251706098As per the copy on the page new world Rieslings are generally drier (although there are some lovely wines from the home of this grape - Germany, Austria and Alsace). I personally live a slice of key lime pie with an Ozzie Riesling. If you can locate any sunshine at the moment! I’d try that combination outdoors.
Tesco Finest Tingleup Riesling & Dr Loosen's Kabinett are my current Riesling crush!
Alsace Riesling is excellent - it's dry but really fruity.
I suggest the d'Arenberg Dry Dam Riesling. I agree with Nick's post - southern hemisphere riesling tends to be drier than those from the northern hemisphere. Riesling is also one of the few white wines that definitely benefits from ageing - if you can bear to leave it alone for a couple of years!
I second louisescott's selection, had the Tingleup recently and i always have a spare bottle in my rack. I'm also a fan of Dr loosen.Tasted the 'Simply Riesling' and thought it was pretty good for the price, lovely fresh apples and melon flavours with a slight creamy taste, worth trying.
I have to say that I've never had a bad Dr Loosen wine - they have always been very good.
Tesco Finest 2010 Alsace Riesling and the Tesco Finest 2010 Tingleup Australian Riesling are both great.
