Riesling

Ah, Riesling. It’s Germany’s most planted grape, and we Americans have relished it for decades. But the big story here is dry Riesling. Back in the 1970s, just eighteen percent of German Riesling was produced in a dry style. Nowadays it’s around forty-seven percent, as demand for these mineral-driven gems continues to rise. Riesling aromas are iconic. That petrol note, as I like to call it, is recognized by millions of wine lovers around the world. And the grape is most at home in its native land, Germany. The bottle featured in our tasting exudes a paradoxically soft steeliness. Stone fruits meet zests of lemon and lime. This one brings a notable crisp acidity and solid structure. Pair with Chicken Francese or chickpea curry.
