All about wine

The charm of Riesling


Last March 13 was International Riesling Day, a very particular strain and not known by many. In this note we have more details everything you need to know to discover this wonderful white grape. 

In the world of wine there is a variety that dazzles and captivates both beginners and experts alike, a treasure of oenology that is much more than just a white grape 

Riesling comes from the majestic slopes of the Rhine and Moselle River valleys in western Germany. Its influence, however, has spread beyond its place of origin, reaching other countries such as France, Austria, and Australia, among others. 

This variety particularly stands out for expressing its terroir perfectly. It has a delightful bouquet of floral aromas, including jasmine and roses, as well as citrus notes of grapefruit, lemon peel, and ginger. The taste is fruity, with hints of peach, pear, green and red apple, and a subtle touch of honey. Every sip of this wine is sure to awaken your senses and leave you wanting more. 

This variety offers excellent versatility; thanks to its refreshing acidity and rich minerality, it is a perfect wine to pair with seafood dishes, Asian food, and creamy cheeses. 

Riesling is not just any ordinary grape; it’s an exceptional wine offering a unique experience to explore your senses in a single glass. If you’re a wine enthusiast, particularly for white wines, we invite you to taste this variety, which is sure to captivate your palate. 

Let’s toast to Riesling and all the experiences it gives us with every sip!
