Reh Kendermann’s Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling - Product Launch
Reh Kendermann's Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling
Category – Wine, Germany
Available – From this month
Location – UK, off-premise
Price - Both carry an RRP of GBP7 (US$9.20) per bottle
Reh Kendermann has launched two German wines, including a Sauvignon Blanc, in the UK on-premise, targeting shoppers in two of the country's larger supermarket chains. Both the Sauvignon Blanc Kalkstein 2015 and the Riesling Kalkstein 2014 hail from vineyards in the Pfalz region of Germany.
Kalkstein is German for limestone.
The Sauvignon Blanc, which Reh Kendermann claims is one of the first German Sauvignon Blancs to launch in the UK, will sell exclusively through Asda, while the Riesling will be available from Tesco.
Reh Kendermann also owns the Black Tower wine brand. Last year, the company launched two lower-alcohol variants of Black Tower in the UK. B Fruitful and B Secco carry an abv of 5.5% and retail at GBP4 per bottle.
Two new and unique premium German terrior wines, just introduced to the UK for the first time by leading producers Reh Kendermann, are set to challenge traditional wines from countries like France and New Zealand which have until now dominated the UK marketplace.
Both wines are produced from vineyards in the Pfalz region of Western Germany - one of Germany's most important regions - where the cool climate and 'Kalkstein' limestone soil produces the pale, well-structured aromatic grapes that give these delicious wines a distinctive taste.
Reh Kendermann, Germany's most successful wine exporter to the UK, says its new Sauvignon Blanc Kalkstein 2015 will appeal to customers who enjoy a particular Sauvignon style, but are looking for a fresh and funky new flavour. The new refreshingly dry Riesling Kalkstein 2014 has just won a prestigious Berlin Wine Trophy gold medal and expels the common UK misconception that German Riesling is a sweet wine.
Sauvignon Blanc Kalkstein 2015 - one of the first German Sauvignon Blancs available in the UK - has a unique aroma, combining the best of the exotic notes of New Zealand-grown wine with the classic style from France. With exotic fruit flavours, a zesty body and well balanced acidity, it is a must-taste wine which promises to become one of the most talked about wines of the year - and is on sale now exclusively at ASDA with a RRP of £7.00 per bottle.
A premium German white wine variety, Riesling can often be dismissed by UK consumers as purely being a sweet wine, but although it is captivatingly fruity, it also performs excellently as a dry version. Refreshingly dry, Riesling Kalkstein 2014 has notes of citrus, apple, passion fruit and minerals drawn from the limestone soil beneath the vines. Incredibly food-friendly and the perfect accompaniment to fish and white meat, it is on sale exclusively at Tesco with a RRP of £7.00 per bottle.
Reh Kendermann's Master of Wine, Alison Flemming who was involved in developing both wines said: "We are very excited to bring these two wines, especially one of the first German Sauvignon Blancs, to the UK. They will open the door to new tastes and experiences for customers that would like to try something uniquely different to the wine they usually drink."
