After a Riesling wine tasting I recently hosted, I’ve decided I’m going to be a Weinkönigin.
Check out this entertaining and enlightening video on how to pronounce German wine terms. Handy when you’re out shopping. Or, if you want to look just a wee bit sophisticated when sipping German wine. Three beautiful German Riesling recommendations for spring and summer sipping follow.
Tesch Unplugged 2009 Riesling, Nahe Germany. Dry, bright, tight and clean. The pleasant pal to hang out with.
Prinz Von Preussen 2009 Riesling, Rheingau. Ignore label’s Medium Dry. This a lovely Off Dry with just a touch of sweet.
Dr Loosen L Riesling 2010, Mosel. From one of Germany’s most celebrated wine regions, this is Med Dry, which means sweet… like summer sun on a patio. Paired well with Thai yellow curry and Szechuan Chinese spicy green beans.
