SGR (Sixty Grams Residual) Made in a Germanic style, the grapes are hand picked to retain high natural acidity and ensure minimal oxidation. Pressing commences immediately, and the juice is transferred to stainless steel tanks. The fermentation is conducted at cool temperatures, and stopped when the balance between the natural sugars and acid is optimal.
Food Pairing Notes
Cajun cuisine, roasted pork, duck or goose, seafood.

There are quite a few medium-sweet Rieslings out there and I tasted many of them for this feature, but few are as good as this: it's spritely and pretty and dances across the tongue on tiptoe. It has 60 grams per litre of residual sugar, but you don't notice because it's so light and lovely.
