Riesling is the most noble of white wine grapes producing some of the world's most versatile wines. They are versatile because the styles produced range from aperitif to dessert, and everything in between. However when choosing a bottle of Riesling, this diversity can make identifying a particular style difficult.

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 recently 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, we at Xabregas wines hope this information will help you discover and appreciate our different styles of Riesling, the foods they compliment and much more.
