One of the greatest grapes to ever make wine, riesling in skilled hands can create a near-magical sensuous, vinous experience. I always expect to see more riesling entered in the Alberta Beverage Awards, but the grape remains a hard sell to many wine drinkers. This year’s winners are a pleasure to drink. Give them a try and find out why I always say that great riesling is proof the universe is unfolding as it should.
