Originally grown in Germany, the Riesling grape is now produced globally. Riesling is considered a generally versatile wine because of its balance of sugar and acidity and is often paired with some of the spicier cuisines of Asia. The grape is rarely fermented in oak.
We've selected some of the Rieslings we believe are interesting. Our selection presented here is not a complete list of the Rieslings we offer. If you have a particular Riesling you're interested in, please contact us so that we may assist you further.

Nestled into the foothills of the Victorian Alps, the Alpine Valleys harbor a handful of dogged grape growers whose ancestors arrived in the 1850s after a less-than-comfortable boat trip from Italy. With lofty slopes climbing to 2000 feet, vineyards are snow clad in winter. The vines here greedily nosh ancient deposits of granite-based loam to produce flinty, minerally wines.
Frisk's eclectic team of winemakers believe wine is for enjoying. They don't try to baffle you with terms you've never heard of or flavors that have no business in a bottle of wine. They make delicious wine with a unique prickle to it. Frisk wines are grown in decidely different climes. Places a little cooler, steeper, and more obscure than the places one would expect winemakers go, because Frisk's brilliantly conceived master plan consists of being where the grapes grow best and making wines that reflect that.
Harvested in the chilly eve, prized free-run Riesling juice is fermented with canny yeasts that ensure the wine is sporting plenty of aromatic verve. And the prickle? A gentle spritz courtesy of those clever yeasts, captured to deliver a palate-rousing tickle.
This zippy Riesling is floral and weighted, with notes of lime sorbet, rose petals and a hint of fennel. With its racy verve, subtle complexity and just a tinge of sweetness, it’s a perfect companion for both sweet and spicy dishes...or simply on its own.
