Big break in weather today here in Central New York. Temperatures will reach about 30F. Must be the annual January thaw! To celebrate I figured to open one of my usually reserved for warm weather whites. My choice is one that was recently purchased at Lakewood Vineyards on Seneca Lake at the December 'Deck the Halls" event. A 2007 Riesling.
I really liked the zesty aromas of citrus and melon with some peach. Nicely balanced with a lot of citrus, peach, melon and a hint of sweetness in the mouth with a long dry finish.
Riesling is one of the few whites that I have come to enjoy alot over the past two years and this is one of the best I've had.
At the event it was paired with a delicious Christmas salad, but today I am having it with a left over baked chicken breast from last night. Very nice with the chicken and believe this would be wonderful with a roast turkey or with seafood. $13
