A Riesling from Maastricht who would have thought that so many years ago. But we can be proud of winemaker Mathieu Hulst from Apostelhoeve. He has meant a lot to Dutch viticulture. This has now grown into very high quality wines, including this Apostelhoeve Riesling. Just above Maastricht lie the vineyards of Apostelhoeve, on the Louwberg to be precise. The limestone and marl rich soil ensures that the Riesling feels very comfortable. With their now deep roots and old vines, they produce beautiful thick bunches. In recent years it has become very warm on the mountain, which translates into fuller and more aromatic white wines. This is why this white Riesling has become so popular.

After a long maturation and a lot of attention from winemaker Mathieu Hulst, the Riesling grapes are ready to be harvested. Completely by hand, they are brought in with a very strict selection. For only the best bunches may end up in the bottle, which is the only way to obtain the pure and powerful style of Apostelhoeve. When you pour this white Riesling, the party already starts: a beautiful deep yellow colour with a green sparkle. The aroma of green apple, a little apricot and ripe pears complete the picture. The taste is also special, quite a lot of flavour with nice fresh acids. This Apostelhoeve Riesling also has notes of yellow and white fruit with a little lemon.

Due to the fuller and more floral tones in this white wine, it goes wonderfully with a piece of salmon or tuna. But it also goes well with other types of fish with, for example, strong or fatty sauces. But it is also highly recommended for poultry, curry dishes and even very well-spiced dishes. Due to its full and powerful style, this Apostelhoeve Riesling remains the master of many dishes and can be the perfect complement.
