Riesling

Definition: Riesling


Riesling is a type of white wine and one of the world's finest grape varieties. It's a classic, noble German white grape that produces many great flavorful, wide ranging, crisp wines. Styles range from bone dry to super sweet. Aromas and flavors include apricot, peach, wet slate, minerals, flowers and petrol (when it's aged). The Riesling grape's ability to retain its acidity while achieving high sugar levels is what creates wines with considerable aging potential. Pair with appetizers, desserts, pork, poultry or fish. Rieslings are also able to handle the spice and zest of Asian foods.

I'm so glad you are mentioning Riesling! It's one of my favorites and every time I tell someone about it they've never heard of it. My favorite brand is Robert Mondavi.

The only reason I drink wine. My favorite is the Columbia Winery Riesling. It's made locally and I can usually get it for between $6-10.

I love Reisling. My favorite variety of Reisling is Auslese, partially because my family is from that region of Germany/France, but also because I think it pairs better with food than the plain Reisling does. I know there are a few other varieties of it as well. They all taste differently because the soil type affects the taste of the finished product. If you wiki Reisling it gives all the different varieties and how they differ.

Hogue Reisling! That is the best one I've ever bought too. It is not too sweet, but still has a lot of flavor. Yum.
