If you are not participating in Dry January, may we suggest some "dry" wines?
We love to dispel the notion that all Rieslings are sweet. Some certainly are (depending when the grapes are harvested), but some can be surprisingly dry for Rieslings.
There are three classifications of Rieslings: Kabinett, Spätlese and Auslese:
• Kabinett is the lightest style of Riesling and range from dry to off-dry
• Spätlese means “late harvest” and is usually sweeter than Kabinett
• Auslese means “select harvest" and it the sweetest of these three
A good rule of thumb: the higher the alcohol percentage, the drier the wine.
We have two examples from Germany and one from Oregon. Stop in and see if you like a dry Riesling!
