Did You Know?... About the Riesling Tasting Scale

There is a perception out there among some people that all Rieslings are sweet. While the grape can make a sweet wine, it can also make an aggressively dry wine, and everything in between. To that end, the International Riesling Foundation developed a sliding scale that can be placed on the label, to help the consumer understand where a unique wine falls on the spectrum. It won't be found on all Rieslings, but is becoming more popular, to help consumers better understand what they are buying.
