The wine was a 2007 Alfred Merkelbach Urzinger Wurzgarten Riesling Kabinett. The bottle got a chill in the freezer for twenty minutes and then was decanted for half an hour while the chicken rested. Flowery nose with crisp apples, tart limes and earthy slate aromas pouring from the glass. Wonderful full flavors of lime and apples with hints of other stone fruits. Good with the chicken but absolutely wonderful with the grilled, fresh peaches. The finish started sweet and then the acid kicked in to counteract it. Wonderful balance and beautiful pairing.
