A Flight of Dry Rieslings
$22.50 - $41.00
Riesling is a white grape that shows immense versatility. It can be bone dry as in Leitz Eins-Zwei-Drei Riesling or as sweet as a Trockenbeerenauslese. The top three regions would be Germany , Alsace and Austria but the grape is having success in all sorts of new world countries like Canada and Australia. The key identifying markers for this grape are racy acidity but also strong aromatics of flowers and perfume.
In terms of food pairings Riesling is the perfect appy wine as it’s acidity can go well with some of the fatty meats and cheeses and the residual sugar can tame the tex- mex and asian spices.
