All About Riesling

You could smell a bouquet of flowers. Or you could take a big whiff of Riesling. This wine’s strong floral aromas, are thanks to a grape that’s one of the most aromatic in the world. You’ll immediately notice nectarine, apricot, apple and pear scents before you take a sip of this crisp wine.

Is Riesling Sweet or Dry?

How about both? Often assumed to be a very sweet wine, you don’t have to look hard to find a dry Riesling wine. It all depends on where the wine is from. Sweeter varieties are the calling cards of Californian and German Riesling, though they turn out a few dry options as well. France, Austria, the Finger Lakes of New York and Washington State typically turn out dry Riesling varieties.

Food Pairings: 

One word: spicy. Why do spicy foods and semi-sweet Riesling pair so well? Voodoo, probably. But when your mouth is on fire, black magic is just what you need. For some out-of-the-box pairings try Indian and Thai food. 

Storage Tips: 

While aging doesn’t do most white wines any favors, Riesling (along with Chardonnay) is the rare exception. Thanks to its elevated acidity levels, high-quality Rieslings can be aged for over 100 years.
