Of the six noble grapes, Riesling is the lone variety to be of German origin rather than French. Originally from the Rheingau region of Germany, where it is still the most widely cultivated grape today, Riesling is known for its outstanding aromatics and is commonly regarded by wine experts as the finest white grape variety in the world. Mercurial in nature, Riesling is highly “terroir-expressive” and begs to be planted in cooler climates; but even small climatic variances in a characteristically cool growing region can lead to markedly different results in the finished wine. Often noted for having a high acidity and palpable mineral character, Riesling is adored for its floral aroma and mouthwatering orchard flavors of apricot and peach, as well as many other ripe fruit notes that vary depending on the region.
The largest producer of Riesling in North America is none other than Washington state, where the grape comes second only to Chardonnay, and a close second at that. Columbia Valley, in particular, has become renowned for its Riesling grapes. Long, sunny days encourage big flavor development while cool evenings assist in the vital preservation of acid levels. Compared to German or French Riesling, the wine from Washington generally possesses a richer body and more ripe fruit character.
Our Washington Riesling is light bodied with energetic aromas of green apple and citrus, complemented by mineral notes. This off-dry white wine has no oak character and an easy-drinking alcohol level of 12%.
The VineCo Original Riesling is one of those wines that seems to effortlessly improve the vibe wherever and whenever it is enjoyed. A bright and cheerful wine that is outgoing to a fault. Regardless of your current mood, once the aromas start popping out of the glass and the acidity starts tickling your tongue, it’ll be hard to hold back a smile. Try it alongside prawns and fresh crab or cuts of pork belly with choucroute.
