Riesling (pronounced as Reez-ling) is considered one of the most noble white wine grape varietals worldwide and is appreciated by novice wine drinkers and connoisseurs alike. In Alsace France, Riesling can be produced as an extremely dry and refreshing wine; however this versatile grape can also produce some of the world’s most sought after dessert wines. The usual flavor profile of Riesling has notes of peaches, honeysuckle, apple and jasmine with a mineral-like component.
