Riesling, grape of the Übermenschen

Whilst drinking this Riesling from Boxler my thoughts turn to how much I love Riesling. It is just such a versatile grape, from dry, linear excitement, via rich, fat jollity to elegant sweetness it covers most of the bases one would want in a white wine. I admit, it doesn’t do oaky power, but it does power in its own way. When one gets to try a wine as thrilling as this Boxler one can really see that other white grape varieties are less necessary than one might have previously thought. There are plenty of Chardonnays, and the odd white wine from other varieties, that I do enjoy, but given a choice a bottle of damned fine Riesling really hits my lewd spot. Pinot for red and Riesling for white, hooray!
