Riesling and Salmon
Pale color in the glass the wine had a nose of white peach, nectarine and lychee. One had to reach to get citrus out of this wine. Medium body, good weight in the mouth and a bit of honeysuckle on the finish. The acid was correct and everything together made for a nice bottle of wine.
There was a salmon fillet that was marinated in an Asian inspired sauce that included soy sauce, mirin, ginger and garlic. The fillet went on the grill while some green beans were stir fried with a Thai chili sauce and some rice noodles were stir fried with ginger and garlic. The results are below.
The wine was a perfect foil for the strong flavorings on the food. The honeysuckle finish helped dispel the heat and the acid made one want another drink and another bite.
