Food Pairing Notes
The residual sugar in our Riesling makes it an excellent pairing for spicy dishes, especially those with an Asian influence. Try it with Korean barbecue, seared ahi, or scallops.
Considered the noble grape of Germany, Riesling is a varietal that lends itself to a number of wine styles, from bone-dry to dessert. Riesling tends to be light in color with low viscosity. The nose can vary from light, bright and citrusy to rich and syrupy with characteristic petrol overtones. On the palate they range from light, crisp and dry to full and unctuously sweet. Typically Rieslings that aren’t expressly listed as ‘dry’ will have some degree of residual sugar. Along with those from Germany, well-regarded Rieslings are produced in Alsace (France), Austria, New York, Oregon, and Washington.
