About Riesling Grape
It’s a versatile grape that produces very sweet or very dry wines as well, all depending on the region where the wine was grown. Riesling originated from Rhine wine region of Germany but is also well known in Alsace, France. Over time it became popular in other regions; Austria, Oregon, Washington, and even the cooler regions of California. Wine produced from this grape varietal is low in alcohol, crisp, fruity and deliciously refreshing, high in acidity, and with strong floral aromas. With age, Riesling can develop complex aromas of gasoline. Although Riesling pairs well with all food types, it tastes its best when accompanied with spicy food. It’ll delight your taste buds!
