Food pairing notes

“Riesling is indeed renowned for its versatility as a food wine, offering a wide range of styles to suit various dishes and palates. With its spectrum of flavors, from bright and citrusy to richer and honeyed, there is a Riesling to complement every course and cuisine.

For fresh and delicate seafood dishes, a classic dry Riesling is a standout choice. Its vibrant notes of lemon and apple beautifully enhance the flavors of raw and lightly cooked shellfish, such as prawns, crab, and seared squid. Additionally, when paired with light noodle dishes featuring seafood, dry Riesling creates a harmonious and refreshing combination.

When it comes to spicy foods, especially Asian and Asian-inspired cuisines like Thai or Indian, medium-dry Rieslings excel. The complex and aromatic flavors of curries, ginger, kaffir lime, lemongrass, coriander, and fresh chilies are brilliantly balanced by the nuanced sweetness and acidity of medium-dry Rieslings. The interplay of flavors creates a delightful and complementary pairing.

Whether you’re enjoying fresh seafood delicacies or indulging in the bold spices of Asian cuisine, Riesling offers a versatile selection to elevate your dining experience. Its ability to harmonize with a variety of flavors and its range of styles make it an exceptional choice for food pairing.
