Pairings: Riesling is an extremely food-friendly wine. Beautiful with vegetarian dishes, light pastas, salads, it also works well with salmon, trout, flaky white fish, and sushi. Riesling works well with creamy sauces, pickled vegetables, an array of cured meats (charcuterie), and food items that can be tricky to pair including oysters, asparagus, and cabbages.

Avoid pairing heavy, fatty meats.

Cheese Pairings: Goat cheeses, hard and soft, sheep’s milk cheese, creamy cheeses including brie and camembert.

About This Wine Fresh, primary lemon and lime aromas lend a pristine quality to this brisk, moderately full-bodied Riesling. It's dry and mineral on the palate with tart grapefruit flavors accented by hints of pollen and chamomile.
