What You Need To Know About Dry Riesling Wine And Food

Riesling is one of those very food friendly wines. Our pairing tables list it for most but not all food categories. When the table states Riesling, usually you can substitute a dry Riesling. Riesling, dry or not, is the signature grape of Germany and is grown elsewhere including in the United States.

Riesling starts at about $10 a bottle and can go sky high. The Deinhard Riesling Dry from the Rheinhessen region of Germany is good for starters. Like so many other Rieslings you get a sense of gasoline in this case with green apples and finishing with a hint of minerals. For about $20 move up to New Zealand's well-known Kim Crawford Dry Riesling, a zesty limey and grapefruity wine that is particularly good with shellfish. And in the $50 range you should try the elegant Alsatian (French) Trimbach Cuvée Frédéric Emile Riesling with its apple, lime, and minerals and fine acidity.
