Riesling wines range from being dry and stony to floral and sweet, and the sweetest versions can age for decades. Riesling is a white grape variety which originated in the Rhine region, Germany. Australia can lay claim to making some of the best examples of Riesling outside Europe. This aromatic white grape with high acidity is fruity and floral rather than herbaceous. In cool climates it offers notes of green apple, green pear, floral notes, and citrus (lemon, lime); in moderate climates citrus and stone fruit become dominant, along with notes of lime and white peach.
Riesling ages well, producing secondary characteristics such as honey, kerosene and smokiness. This type of grape is much lighter in comparison to other white wines. It is a brilliant food wine and common dishes that go well with Riesling are fish, chicken, duck, pork, shrimp, asian cuisines and spicy Indian.
