Sarah Purdon's Top Tipple!

GeneralWine Liphook

This week Sarah, our Petersfield Manager has picked one of her favourite's for our Top Tipple feature!!

Donnhoff Tonschiefer Dry Slate Riesling from Nahe, Germany is Sarah's Top Tip this week:

Tasting Notes - citrus fresh with ripe grapefruit aromas follow through to flavours of tangy citrus lemon and tropical fruits with an enjoyable subtle spritz on the tongue!

Why is it so good?

Helmut Donnhoff is one of the greatest winemakers in Germany and his wines never fail to impress even in tough vintages.  The Rieslings are consistent, light and interesting.  The Dry Slate is one of my favourite wines as it can be enjoyed all year round.

What should you eat with it?

It is perfect with pate, cheese, salads, smoked meats and salted nuts!

A bit about Sarah Purdon....

Sarah is the Manager of our Petersfield Shop!

Whilst rearing rare breed cattle for slow grown beef Sarah was approached by one of her customers, a director of a wine company, to join Fine Wine events and match different beef recipes to the wines.  Her love of wine and especially food and wine pairing grew from there.

She went on to work in various areas of the wine and spirits industry, working with distilleries, buying for a chain of shops and consulting for a wine company in Hong Kong.  One of her highlights was hosting pop up dining for charity events with Tom Kerridge, Mark Tilling and matching wines to their great menus.   

For the last 2 years she has been looking after our Petersfield Shop and enjoying the diverse selection of wines and spirits that the General Wine Company offer.
