It’s true that Riesling is often vinified to leave residual sugar. This practice is integral to balancing the high acid levels especially when grown in cooler climates. However, there are many examples of dry Riesling wines that may just change your mind about the grape.
We wanted a very dry expression of Riesling at an everyday price and we found a great one from Austria's Wachau Valley - considered to be one of the best wine-growing regions of the world.
A elegant and intense Riesling, this is balanced with notes of fruity tropical flavors, with peach and apricot notes permeated throughout. Green & flinty with a hint of minerality and lip-smacking fruitiness on the finish.
Pair with light meats and fish. Dry Rieslings pair well with soft, creamy cheese like Brie; Camembert.
