Shop for Riesling
Producing aromatic white wines, the best Riesling grape is prized for its ability to convey much about the terroir of a region, while distinctly remaining Riesling. The defining characteristic of this wine is sweetness, though not all Rieslings must be sweet. The first Riesling grapes to be harvested are labeled as Kabinett (the driest style of Riesling). Continuing in order of ripeness (and sweetness), there are Spätlese, Auslese, and the rare Beerenauslese style Rieslings.
Riesling thrives in a cool-climate environment and may be found worldwide. The best rieslings from the US are typically found in regions such as the Finger Lakes in New York State, Oregon, and Washington.
