About Virgin Wines
Unlike supermarkets, Virgin Wines is not about selling big name wines made in huge factories using mass produced techniques. Instead, they sell boutique quality wines produced by small independent winemakers who make their wine for love and not money. They believe in offering their customers exceptional value for money and their wine buyers constantly scour the globe to find the best wines possible.
They were established in 2000 so they have many years of experience behind them, and they are proud to announce that this year they were even named ‘Online Retailer of the Year’ at the Drinks Retailing Awards.
Ask someone to name a German wine and most people will give you the names of cheap bland sugary brands, which unfortunately Germany has now become associated with. German wine is more than Blue Nun, Liebfraumilch or Hock however. There is a wealth of very good quality delicious wine waiting to be discovered. If you are looking to try something new, or haven’t tried German wine since you were fed a warm bottle of Hock at a house party in the early 90s then try again. Chances are you’ll find something you like!
4 x Losen-Bockstanz Riesling Spatlese Urziger Wurzgarten 2016, worth £9.99 a bottle – This beauty is as fresh-faced as its maker and sports vibrant, fresh, intensity and balance in equal measure. A citrus symphony here with cool, ripe acidity and a delicious grapefruit tang on the finish. Great with seafood.
4 x Losen-Bockstanz Riesling on Slate Qba Wittlicher Lay 2016, worth £10.99 a bottle – This is a perfectly balanced Qba from super talented winemaker, Thomas Losen. It combines layers of sweet apricot and peach fruit with the searing acidity only the best sites and most dedicated producers can achieve.
4 x Aloisiushof Element Gewurztraminer 2015, worth £11.99 a bottle – This stunning example of a Gewürztraminer was produced in the Palatinate German wine region on the Aloisiushof estate. Located in the Southern Wine Route in St. Martin, where the region’s mild climate is ideal for grape growing. This spicy, aromatic variety just loves it there! Packed with character. Filled with spicy lychee fruit.
In addition for your chance to win this wonderful case of wine, we have two Virgin Wines special offers for all Silversurfers members
