The wine collection is incomplete without this German variety of wine. This wine has now gained a heritage position in the wine world and we cannot stop thanking the Germans for it. It originated in the Rhine region and grows as one of the most aromatic grapes called as Riesling. The grapes are one of its kind due to its flowery, perfume like aromas and high acidity. One can literally trace this wine back to the ancient times and has its literary presence back in 1546. This wine again has two types- Sweet and Dry Riesling. Traditionally, the wine usually is on a sweeter side to balance out its acidity.
This grape variety is rarely blended with other grapes as its own unique nature makes it untouchable. The flavors that this grape carries include apricot, apple, pear, pineapple, nectarine, lime, meyer lemon, honey, beeswax, ginger, petrol, rubber etc. The aged bottle always has a strong aftertaste of petrol, lanolin and diesel. This wine is best paired with spicy food due to its sweet nature. The food pairings include duck, bacon, chicken, crab, shrimp, spiced vegetables, cayenne pepper, ginger, turmeric, clove, soy sauce, madras curry, cow cheese, roasted and sauté veggies.
