Many people assume that all Rieslings are ultra-sweet, syrupy dessert wines, but in today’s market, that belief is entirely inaccurate. Riesling comes in a range of styles, from bone-dry to intensely sweet, with the dry styles creating a certain hype for their incredible distinctiveness among white wines. Jason-Stephens’ 2012 Riesling is made in a balanced, dry style and the result is a wine that is elegant, complex and balanced, with a soft, light texture. On the nose, tropical notes of guava, pineapple and banana mingle together and complement the light, crisp, and dry palate.
The 2012 Riesling is an excellent wine for pairing with food - we recommend the Tuna Ceviche recipe. Jason-Stephens’ goal is to craft an interesting Riesling that is balanced with fruit, structure, and a soft texture. They have certainly achieved that!
