Clos du Bois California Riesling

Varietal:  Riesling

Region:  California – USA

Cost:  $12.99 – $13.99

 

A semi-sweet white wine from California (with a French name that means “Enclosure in the Woods”) with citrus flavors and a bright, clean aroma.  Clos du Bois has less residual sugar and sweetness than a German Riesling.  Will pair fairly well with spicy food.

 

Recommendation:  If you’re a fan of sweeter Rieslings, this wine will probably suit your tastes if you want something that is sweet, but not sickly sweet.  That being said, this Riesling is leans closer to the sweet side of the Riesling varietal.  If you’re more interested in a Riesling that is dryer, this probably isn’t the one for you.  Pair this with something spicy if you buy it, but you might want to avoid it if you don’t want something with too much sweet flavor.
