Riesling is one of the world’s most versatile white varietals that can be produced in a range of style from bone-dry to extremely sweet (for dessert wines). Enjoyed by casual wine drinkers for its easy fruitiness and prized by connoisseurs for its complexity, ageworthiness, and ability to reflect its terroir (vineyard characteristics in which it was grown).

Flavor Descriptors

Riesling has excellent natural acidity and when produced in a light drier style can offer lively floral citrus notes, an underlying mineral complexity, and a mouth-puckering limey tanginess. In the sweeter wines, this natural acidity helps balance the sweetness of such flavors as peach, apricot, lemon curd, baked apples, and ripe pear. As Riesling ages, it takes on honeyed petrol notes that may surprise some but is considered nectar to devotees. It generally is not oaked.

Food Pairings

Dry

Scallops in cream sauce, lightly breaded veal cutlets, rabbit, light chicken and pork dishes.

Moderately sweet

Spicy Asian and Indian fare, duck, rich pork dishes.

Dessert

White fruit tarts (apple, pear, lemon), meringue, biscotti, crème brulée.

      Hi, Ninnnett. The salsa that goes with the tenderloins is the second recipe listed in the article. I have consolidated that portion of the recipe for you here:

      Pineapple & Cucumber Salsa

      1 20 oz can pineapple tidbits, drained
      1 small cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
      2 Tbs rice vinegar
      2 Tbs olive oil
      1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
      1 jalapeño pepper, diced and seeded (use gloves when handling pepper)
      1 Tbs black pepper, coarsely ground
      4 Tbs cilantro, finely chopped

      Directions

      In medium bowl, stir together pineapple tidbits, cucumber, rice vinegar, olive oil, cayenne pepper, jalapeño pepper (use rubber gloves when handling pepper), black pepper, and cilantro. Cover and let rest at room temperature for an hour to let flavors blend. Refrigerate for longer storage; bring to room temperature before serving. Makes 3 cups.

      Hope this helps! ~Zachary
