Riesling Wine

The most famous cool climates for Riesling wine are in Germany, Austria, and the Alsace region of France. In these places, Riesling wine can be dazzling, with intense mineral and peach flavors and breathtaking clarity and transparency. Similarly, the cool vineyards of upper New York state, Washington, Ontario, British Columbia, and New Zealand can produce elegant Riesling wine.

Riesling wines can span a broad range of styles, being produced in both dry and sweet variations. Riesling wine aromas lean towards the fruity-side with apple, peach and pear standing at the forefront mixed with delicate floral undertones.

Riesling wine grapes need cooler climates and they produce both refreshing light-bodied wines and full-bodied table wines to pair with the greatest cuisine. Riesling wine has a very high natural acidity, which both balances the sugar in sweeter wines and acts as a preservative for long ageing.

Riesling wines tend to pick up flavoring from the mineral content in the soils they are grown in, making it common for hints of slate or stone to make their way into the aroma and flavor of Riesling wines. True Riesling wines have two dominant aliases, Johannisberg Riesling and White Riesling both of which refer to the authentic Riesling made from the Riesling grape.

Riesling Wine Tip:

Riesling wine is brilliant with fish, shell-fish, poultry, cold meat and dishes such as sauerkraut or smoked ham.
