Riesling wine comes from the white Riesling grapes. It is an aromatic white wine that can be anything from bone dry to lusciously sweet. Considered highly expressive, the character of a Riesling wine resonates with the wine's local environment.
With its balance of sugar and acidity, Riesling wine can be paired with either white fish or pork. Riesling is also considered to be one of the few wines that can be paired up with Thai and Chinese dishes. Dry Riesling is usually served cold. Older (and thus, sweeter) Rieslings can be served warm.
Riesling can often be an exceptional pairing with oysters. The brisk acidity of a dry Riesling offers a balance with raw oysters.
