Riesling Wines

The renowned Riesling grape is indigenous to Germany's Rhein and Mosel River Valleys. A Riesling wine has a broad range of styles, being produced in both dry to sweet varieties as well as in a light to full-bodied. While most white wines are meant to be consumed soon after bottling, the high-quality Riesling can last and mature in the bottle for over a hundred years.

What  does Riesling tastes like?

Riesling is an aromatic, deliciously refreshing wine that has tastes of the nectar of apples, peaches, apricots, and pears. Usually crisp, due to its high levels of acidity, Riesling is known for its strong floral aromas. Besides fruity flavors, you’ll often smell things like jasmine, honeycomb, or lime peel, along with a remarkable aroma that smells comparable to petrol or petroleum wax. On the palate, Riesling has high acidity, similar to the levels in lemonade. It also tends to pick up a notable "minerality" from their native soils, revealing why hints of slate or limestone can be presented.

Food Pairings

Riesling pairs well with almost all food types, but all the more with spicy food. Strong Indian and Asian spices are an excellent match with Riesling. From appetizers to desserts, poultry, pork, or shellfish, Riesling styles makes them capable of managing just about anything including the flavors of Asian, Mexican and even Moroccan foods.
