White grape variety

Riesling is a white grape variety native to the Rhine Valley. Riesling is a flowery, almost perfumed grape variety with high acidity and flowery, almost perfumed aromas. It’s used to make white wines that are dry, semi-sweet, sweet, and sparkling. Riesling wines are almost never oaked and are normally varietally pure. Riesling was the world’s 20th most planted variety in 2004, with 48,700 hectares, but it is typically included in the “top three” white wine varieties, alongside Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc, in terms of value for quality wines. Riesling is a terroir-expressive variety, which means that the character of Riesling wines is strongly influenced by the wine’s roots.
