CWM Wine Appreciation: Germany and Alsace

 

 For April's wine club meeting we will be taking a look at a full range of the intense, characterful wines of Germany and the nearby French region of Alsace. From the cool, northerly vineyards in the likes of the Mosel Valley, Pfalz, and Rheinhessen, German winemakers are best known for exploiting the Riesling grape to its full potential, made in a range of styles. Ranging from steely, lean, bone dry wines, to late-harvest, intensely sweet nectar, they all remain crisp, very refreshing white wines worthy of their global popularity.

Alsace, on the slopes of the Vosges mountains, is something of an outlier as a French region, with its own traditions and grape varieties, producing uniquely aromatic wines from Riesling, Muscat, Gewurztraminer, and Pinot Gris. 

On Tuesday April 16th we will be tasting a selection from these two wine regions, encompassing the well-known traditional styles, and some interesting curiosities as well. 

Spaces can be booked at our Cherry Hinton Road branch, and are priced at £15pp.
