Most German Rieslings work very well with food such as seafood and roasted duck, goose or pork. It also is a good accompaniment to Chinese, Cajun and Thai cuisine. A very dry Riesling such as a Kabinett is best with seafood, Asian cuisine or poultry. An off dry Spatlese is a good choice with spicy food, smoked meat, and seafood such as fish, lobster and scallops. It also works well with fruit. At the other end of the spectrum, the Riesling sweet wines such as Beerenauslese, Trockenbeerenauslese and Eiswien (which is literally translated as ‘ice wine’), taste great when paired with any dessert such as caramel apples, pies, peaches and cream, tropical or any fresh fruit. Eiswien is so sweet, it can even be a dessert by itself!
