Comparative Riesling Tasting
Saturday July 1st
Winery Format $15pp
Riesling is considered one of the greatest white wine varietals in the world. There are many examples of wines made with 100% Riesling that demonstrate its ability to age and the complexity of the grape. There is an association with sweetness and Riesling, however there are a versatility of styles from bone dry to lusciously sweet. Riesling is planted in many regions throughout the world from classics like the Mosel in Germany, Alsace in France, to more recent plantings relative to Europe such as Finger Lakes, NY, Colombia valley in Washington State and Eden and Clare valley in Australia. Riesling shows a diversity of flavor profiles from tropical and orchard fruit to zesty lime, stone minerality, and petrol. In this tasting we will feature a tasting flight of Rieslings from different regions throughout the world to demonstrate the diversity of styles. If you are curious about Riesling or looking for another white wine to enjoy this summer this is a great tasting to explore!
