Riesling is the ultimate summer wine for its refreshingly crisp quality. Thanks to its delicate, moderate alcohol content, the unwooded, crisp acidity and complex aromas shine through for a light and subtly sweet flavour. It can be served very cold, out of the refrigerator, whereas some white wines such as Chardonnay don’t taste their best when they are served cold. To add, Riesling suits Thailand’s hot climate and pairs with Thai cuisine very well. Its high acidity can adapt and enhance powerful Thai flavours as the cool serving temperature of Riesling and its varying sugar levels can soothe the heat found in most Thai dishes.
The “Bangkok Summer of Riesling” campaign starts with the launching event on Thursday, 12th May 2016 and 4 Riesling wine talks with different themes throughout the month of May. Riesling wine talks will take place on Wednesday, 4th of May, Thursday, 19th of May, Monday 23rd of May, with the final one concluding a monumental Riesling month on Tuesday 31st of May. To explore the fabulous and varying world of Riesling, Riedel Wine Bar & Cellar will serve 8 different Riesling by the glass a state-of-the-art wine dispensing machine the entire month of May, available in 3 different pouring sizes (30ml, 75ml and 150ml).
