Off-Dry Riesling Pairings

Slide 3 of 10

2009 Peregrine Riesling

Pairing: Lemongrass-Barbecued Pork with Rice-Vermicelli Salad

This dish is sweet, tangy, fragrant and spicy all at once—a tough combination for most grape varieties, but ideal for an aromatic, off-dry (i.e., slightly sweet) Riesling. Though New Zealand is primarily known for Sauvignon Blanc, it's also an up-and-coming Riesling producer.
