A zippy, vibrant, and delicious Riesling made from grapes from Pfalz in Germany and made in Renegade's awesome urban winery in London. The grapes were pressed off the skins and cold-settled for 24 hours. It was then inoculated with a yeast strain and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 10/15 days. It continued to age in stainless steel for 5 months before it was sterile filtered and bottled. A traditional style Riesling with a little more stoned fruit notes than normal, big peach and apricot vibes on the nose and then it's all zingy citrus from then on.
Renegade isn't a traditional producer as they don't have a vineyard and instead buy their grapes depending on quality from growers in the UK and as far and wide as Albania. This may seem mad to a lot of traditionalists however a great line/description on their about us page is "Just like a chef who can select in-season vegetables from the best growers, we can change suppliers and pick the best grapes depending on the weather, regional variances and other external factors" which when you think about it seems obvious right? Why have the restraints of having to use the same grapes year in year out even if you know the previous vintage was better? Anyway, we have long been fans of these guys not because of their ethos and culture or their incredibly original labeling but because their wines absolutely BANG!
