The Most Versatile White Wine on Earth?

TombstoneShadow | | Jan 9, 2014 10:07 PM

The cover page of the October 2013 Food & Wine caught my eye with this headline: " The Most Versatile White Wine on Earth ".

The headline refers to an article titled "The Case for Riesling" by Megan Krigbaum.

As my many posts on riesling show, I'm a diehard fan of this luscious varietal and really welcome this informative article. Megan provides a tremendous backgrounder to the "wide-world" of riesling from the vast range of styles, terroir differences in it's many growing regions, pairing suggestions,etc.

In fact, she makes a compelling case that riesling is the world's most versatile and food-friendly wine period, not just white wine.

Highly recommended reading. I haven't located the article online but here are some excerpts:
