Riesling is one of the most hardy grape varieties in the world, with a high level of frost resistance. It grows in cool climatic winemaking regions, particularly in Russia. This makes it possible to buy a domestic wine product of excellent quality at a democratic price.
Riesling Taste Profile
Is it sweet? Is it dry? It's both. Riesling wine can be sweet or dry, thin or strong, light or full. It's a sort of chameleon wine, since its taste and price depend on where it's grown and how old it is;
One of the most important characteristics of the Riesling wine profile is its high acidity.
The familiarity begins with intense aromas emanating from the glass (even when the wine is icy). This wine offers major notes of orchards:
- crispy honey apple;
In addition to fruit, the taster smells of honeycomb, jasmine flowers or lime zest, mineral notes of steel, slate, flint and chalk,
а также поразительный аромат, похожий на запах бензина или нефтяного воска (природное соединение, называемое TDN или 1,1,6-триметил-1,2-дигидронафталина).
On the palate, Riesling wine has a high acid content, comparable to that of lemonade.
