Riesling has exits to sweet and dry but both have zing.
Riesling has a lot going for it (apart from a hangover from the 70s). It is fresh and zingy with an aromatic fruitiness, a bit like biting into a crisp green apple. German Riesling can be a real experience but you need to check the label as some are sweeter than others (trocken means dry) whereas the newer New Zealand, Australian, Chilean and Argentinian Rieslings tend to be crisper and drier. These are great wines if you find Sauvignon a bit too in your face and acidic but still want that refreshing mouth tingle. They tend to be lighter wines too so you’re less likely to wake up with a headache!
