International Riesling Foundation
Riesling is the most noble of white wine grapes in the world and responsible for some of the world's most versatile wines. They are versatile because the styles produced range from aperitif to dessert, and everything in between.
Xabregas is one of the first Australian members of the International Riesling Foundation (IRF), a discerning group of global Riesling producers that are dedicated to make Riesling more understood. The IRF has introduced a sliding scale or 'slider' to help wine aficionados better appreciate the many virtues of Riesling. It involves the interplay of sugar and acidity parameters and how they relate to balance. The four categories selected are Dry, Medium Dry, Medium Sweet and Sweet.
To help you choose one of our Xabregas Rieslings that best suits your palate, the IRF Slider now appears on every Xabregas Riesling bottle.
As Riesling lovers, Xabregas hope this information will help you discover and appreciate the different styles of Riesling, the foods they compliment and much more.
