dry riesling

2013 Weingut Gysler Weinheimer Riesling Kabinett

It’s a lovely day for an off-dry German Riesling! Lemon, apple, pear, stone, honeysuckle, and white and yellow florals on the nose. Off-dry on the palate like a sweet pear dessert. Nice lemon finish. Slate mid-palate. Simple, but a pretty classic read on a German Riesling. Great for the price - it’s hard to find inexpensive German Rieslings!

Riesling, in my view, works well as both a spring and fall grape. In the spring, I find myself reaching for the dry version for some refreshment, whereas in the fall, I might go for the more luscious, fruit-forward version. Dry Riesling provides that crisp, food friendly refreshment you want when you can finally open the windows and let some air inside.
