Our Pick of Summer Riesling Wines

Riesling has overcome its sugar-water reputation to be appreciated as a versatile wine, quite unlike any other. Generally light in alcohol and with a high natural acidity that helps lift any sweetness, it makes for the perfect summer wine to be drunk alone or with shellfish, poultry, desserts and even spicy food.
