While some Rieslings are bone-dry, most (especially in California) have a degree of residual sugar—the percentage of sugar remaining in the wine after fermentation—for these food-friendly wines range from ±1% (or dry) to ±2% (or off-dry) and V. Sattui makes a wine at each of these levels. Our White Riesling, made from the true Riesling grape of Germany’s bereich covering the entire Rheingau region, and which grows so well here, has intense tropical fruit aromas with clean, green apple, honey and apricot flavors. Its finish is softly floral, rich and opulent. Its medium-sweetness invites sipping even on it own, but certainly with many foods.

An outstanding Reisling with color and finish to rival many from the Continent. This is a favorite of ours and often finds a welcome place at the table.

Having lived for over 4 years on the Mosel river in Germany, I have tasted many award winning Reisling wines. This wine fits in with some of the best I have sampled. I intend to add this to my list of must buys

Eleven years in Germany with USAF and this wine is every bit as good as the best German wines.

One of the best Reislings I have ever had so far! It is very smooth with a little bit of sweetness, an absolute favorite for me.

I've been drinking Rieslings most of my life. This is the first Dry version I have ever had. To my delight, it is at the top of my list when I go to buy Rieslings.

We love Rieslings, but some are too sweet. This has become our FAVORITE Riesling ever. It's just the right sweetness, very smooth and just plain divine. This will be a constant in our household.

The Off-Dry Riesling is one of my favorites. Of all Rieslings that I have tried, this is so far the best as far as consistency especially sweetness & smoothness. This variety has been part of my collection.

Tennessee recently, a year ago, allowed home delivery of wine. When I bought my house 12 years ago the sellers agent came to pick up a refrigerator that she bought from the previous owners. While her and her husband was here they noticed the cork screw with Victor Sattui wines on it. They told me that VS was their favorite winery. I just happened to have a couple of bottles of off-site Riesling that I had bought when I was in the Navy and had toured the winery. I told them I didn't think the wine was still good as the bottles had been been stored for a couple of years while I was deployed. They had kept an u opened bottle of this same vintage the got on their honeymoon but it had gotten broken. I was happy to give them one of mine to renew the memories they had of their honeymoon. It is truly a small world when wine lovers can share their favorite winery in Memphis TN. I gave this wine 5 stars for the memories it has given over the years.
