Riesling is a grape that people either love or hate. So much so, that every restaurant has reserved a place on its wine list for this grape. Riesling can be confusing and German, to most of us, looks like a bunch of letters with dots. In Germany, the winemaker’s battle has always been with achieving ripeness, so the Germans use this barometer as their system for classification. Historically, the longer on the vine and riper the grapes, the sweeter and more complex the wine will be. But in actuality, in the hands of a great producer, a younger dry Riesling can be a great substitute for wines like Sauvignon Blanc. It’s fruity, floral, and really refreshing. There’s nothing wrong with that. We think the best purpose for Riesling is to drink a lot of it. Also, if you insist on having anything other than beer with spicy food, drink Riesling, it’s less weird than chugging a glass of milk to ease the burn.
