This article will show you the right food to pair with Riesling. The idea of food pairing is to be able to create a balance between the dish and being able to do this properly will help you create a luxurious and enjoyable experience. 

1. Fried seafood favorites + Charles & Charles Riesling

Fried seafood favorites like pinaputok na pla-pla and crispy crablets make an ideal partner with Riesling.

Charles & Charles has a unique richness, with a touch more of the high tone key lime Mosel component that shines through to make for a more dynamic and complex profile. The fruity depth and persistent fizz of a bottle of Charles and Charles will hook into the crispy exterior and rich taste of battered, fried fish. Tartar sauce alongside will elevate the wine’s quality.

2. All time Filipino staple, Kare-Kare + Jacob’s Creek Riesling

Extremely pale with hints of green in color, Jacob’s Creek aroma envelopes with fresh lemon and Jasmines and gives an exquisite taste of citrus flavors. The next time you serve home cooked Kare-Kare, make sure to bring out a bottle of Jacob Creek’s Riesling. The tangy and citrusy flavor of Jacob Creek’s will balance out the thick and creamy peanut sauce of Kare-Kare. 

3. Spicy Sisig + Schloss Vollrads Riesling Kabinett

Elegant, fine and polished, Kabinett wines are perfect for any occasion. This rich flavored wine is a fine mix of citrus fruits, peach, and minerals all balanced in taste. Geographically framed by the Rhine and Taunus mountains in Germany, this bottle of Riesling expresses what German Rieslings are all about. A bottle of Schloss Vollrads Riesling Kabinett paired with some spicy sisig is a match made in heaven. Try it… and thank us later. 

4. Bicol Express Laing + Louis Guntrum Dry Riesling 750ml

With this riesling, you can expect to get white peaches, apricots, and juicy pears. An off-dry riesling paired with flavorful bicol express would create a superb, mouth-watering experience. The dynamite tropical fruit flavors of the Louis Guntrum with acidity and sweetness is perfect  to the spiciness and flavors of Bicol Express laing.
