Riesling as a grape variety is celebrating its 587th birthday this year. Perhaps the most misunderstood and sometimes under-appreciated variety, Riesling is made in such a diversity of styles: from light-bodied refreshing Kabinetts to Grosses Gewaches and TBAs that can age for decades, it is a wondrously transparent variety that speaks the truth of terroir.
