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.
