With the wealth of choice available in white wines, it is often difficult to see beyond the sea of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Even Pinot Gris, Riesling and Albariño have their fan clubs (as does Chenin Blanc these days!).
It is therefore easy to see how we often overlook the great dry whites of the Rhône, Austria and Portugal, or powerful blends from the New World which do not fit neatly into a varietal view of the wine world. In this fine wine masterclass, we take you on a ripstop tour around the globe, looking at great wines which stand proudly in a realm beyond safe varieties and regions. Pinot Blanc from the heartland of Riesling, white wines in a region awash with reds, dry wines in a famous sweet wine district - we have you covered!
