Discovering Rieslings

For those who think Riesling are limited to sweet, syrupy concoctions like Blue Nun – think again.  The Rhinegau region in Hessen is producing amazing dry and sparkling Riesling, many of which are unfortunately not available in the US.  We have been enjoying these refreshing wines since arriving in Germany.  Attached is a picture of one particularly delicious sparkler, produced by Schloss Vau.  Another to seek out at your local wine shop is a 2012 Hassel Stiftung Riesling by Georg Mueller – crisp and flavorful.
