After a month of red wine, it was time for a change. Also with the cold weather (22 cms of snow in one 24 hour period), I find that riesling makes me think summer, and I really wanted to pretend it is warm out.
This week, @WineGuyTO and I were also trying out a new cookbook to keep us on our healthy eating goal, The Best of Clean Eating 2 (because book 1 was not at the Chapters I went to). We decided to make the beef stir fry, something quick and that we both enjoy. It was fun both of us prepping together to make dinner. The only drawback was that we found that the stir fry lacked some heat/spices that we will add the next time, and that the riesling would have complemented, but we were overall happy with the dish.
@WineGuyTO choose a Good Earth 2009 Medium Dry Riesling to pair. His notes are: As we love the rieslings from Good Earth, this one did not disappoint. The initial nose gives hints of what is to come, petrol and fruits. The colour is a pale lime yellow and the flavour just keeps going. The sweetness is nicely balanced with sharp acidity to truly reward your mouth. The finish is quite long and brings memories of wine country in the spring.
Is there a wine type you want us to open? Let me know!
