Welschriesling

With Wälschriesling, Welschrizling, just some of the many aliases (see Laskirizling, Olaszrizling, Riesling Italico) under which The Other Riesling travels. This has nothing to do with the great German Riesling, and its image was sullied for many years by poorly handled, sweetened-up liquids bearing names like Laski, Olasz and Pecs, but this central European vine can produce some good to very good wine - particularly in Austria's Burgenland, where it regularly makes superb sweet botrytised wines. It is planted widely in Friuli (Italy), Slovenia, Hungary, Romania, Albania and China. The vine ripens late to produce high-acid, gently aromatic wines.
