Osterberg Grand Cru Riesling 2016

This Riesling hails from Alsace, France, 🇫🇷 more specifically, the Grand Cru vineyard of Osterberg on the softly sloping hillsides of Ribeauville.

The ‘Grand Cru’ designation attached to the vineyard site means, among other things, that the corresponding wine must be made exclusively from a noble variety in Alsace. 👑

Riesling is a noble variety along with Gewurztraminer, Muscat, and Pinot Gris. It is known for its powerful aromatics and wide range in sweetness levels. This is a dry representation with 13.5% ABV. While there are notable exceptions, generally speaking, the higher the alcohol (ABV %), the drier the wine will be, because it means more sugar from the grape has been converted to alcohol in the fermentation process instead of the sugar remaining in the resulting wine.

This wine stands up well to the flavors of the sushi and the high acidity cuts through the fatty fish oils and tempura. 🍱 🍣 The aromas include tart and crisp apple, pear, citrus, honeysuckle, and wet stone. A nice contrast and complement to the umami flavors of the meal.

I have come to learn that I love aromatic wines with sushi, such as Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc. Then again I also love Champagne, Chenin Blanc, and Chablis with sushi. And, of course, sake.

Schoenenbourg Grand Cru Riesling 2016

Lightest straw; expressive nose of flower, mineral and fresh rain; palate is a little tropical, very mineral with lots of dry extract, a little sweet but excellent acidity dries it out.
