Riesling is a light-skinned, aromatic grape of German origin known for producing crystalline, aromatic white wines with notes of citrus, wax and lanolin, with a light to medium body and plenty of fresh acidity. Although widely associated with the wines of the Mosel and Alsace, Riesling is planted all over the world, and has established itself in regions such as Washington and Australia's Clare Valley. Riesling is known for its high acidity and can be made in a range of styles, from dry to sweet. The grape is often stereotyped as just a sweet grape, but the majority of global Riesling wines are either dry or off-dry. Riesling is considered by many critics as one of the world's finest white grapes and wines. It has a wide range of aromas, from citrus to sheep's wool/lanolin, and can also have petrol-like aroma in aged or warm climate Rieslings.
