Off-Dry Riesling Pairing Notes

Description: When a wine is labelled "off-dry" it simply means it is a little bit sweet, but not as sweet as a dessert wine would be. This Riesling is made in an off-dry style, which works well with this grape because the balanced acidity makes the wine taste crisp and refreshing even though there's a bit of sweetness. The flavours are fruity (think pear, peach, and apple) and floral, with a subtle mineral note.

Pairing: This Riesling is a perfect match for the spicy sauce, because the sweetness in the wine takes the edge off the heat without squashing the taste. It's light bodied, so it doesn't overpower the light, crispy chips, and the fruit flavours and acidity cleanse the palate and ready the taste buds for more.

Wine Suggestion: Lingenfelder 'Bird Label' Riesling (Pfalz, Germany)
