Wine Pick: Selbach Riesling 2013
Accessible, affordable, and delicious, this German award-winner is always a sound choice.
August 14, 2015
This approachable riesling is a stunning companion to our west coast pan-Asian food flavours. Its colourful label is quite unlike those of most other German wines, and that’s the point—this is an easy-to-understand, well-priced, and globally admired wine from a great Mosel estate. Most people think riesling is always sweet, but when natural grape sugars are balanced by high acidity, the wine tastes ripe, juicy, and dang delicious, with just a whisper of sweetness—in this case, jasmine and green-apple aromas paired with honeydew melon and lime flavours. Tangy, zesty, and impeccably balanced, partner it with take-out spring rolls, grilled lemongrass chicken skewers, or fiery Thai green curry.
