The Cycle of Riesling

“Riesling is the grape that is bringing worldwide recognition to the Finger Lakes, but it has a curious relationship with wine drinkers. A casual drinker tends to prefer sweeter wines—usually white—and Riesling fits the profile. But as they broaden their palate, a wine drinker tends to move to drier wines—choosing red more often—and they malign Riesling as a sugary wine for beginners. Only when they take the time to understand what gives wine potential for greatness do they come back to where they had started. It is the Cycle of Riesling.” ~Evan Dawson, Summer in a Glass.
