    The 2001 Riesling Auslese Piesporter Domherr offers a nose that brings talcum powder to mind. Big, thick, and plush, its attack is broader and richer than the Auslese Goldtropfchen yet it exhibits a more precise mid-palate and finish. Candied minerals make up its flavor profile and distinctive gravel notes are found in its impressive finish. Projected maturity: 2005-2017.

    A focused, lithe Riesling showing pristine peach, citrus and slate notes on a succulent, open structure. It doesn't crackle, but it's deftly balanced.

    Riesling is an aromatic grape that is capable of producing a variety of styles from different regions. It is tolerant of cold winters, is mid- to late-ripening, and buds late, making it suitable for cool climates where it produces wines with green fruit and floral notes. In warmer climates, citrus and stone fruit flavors are dominant, and the wine is richer with less acidity than in cooler regions. When left on the vine Riesling has the ability to accumulate sugar without losing its naturally high acidity. This makes it suitable for a range of sweetness levels, including botrytized wines. The best wines have the ability to age for decades in bottle without losing freshness, and over time these wines develop flavors of honey, toast, and petrol.

    Germany is the heartland of Riesling and produces wines in a range of sweetness levels. The sweetest wines are typically made from botrytized grapes and the highest-quality versions perfectly balance sweetness and acidity, creating a unique combination of flavor concentration and freshness. For the best expressions of this style look to the regions of Mosel and Nahe, to producers such as Donnhoff and Joh. Jos. Prüm. Alsace, France,andAustria are also known for high-quality wines from Riesling and Domaine Zind-Humbrecht produces high-quality wine in the Alsatian style.

    In the New World, Australia is the most famous Riesling producing region, particularly the sub-regions of Clare Valley and Eden Valley. Unlike Old-World wines, these are often bone dry, with high acidity and signature aromas of lime.

    The combination of sweetness and acidity makes Riesling a great pairing for spicy food, particularly Indian and Asian, as well as cheeses and fatty meats such as duck leg.
