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.
