I recently blogged my chili-mango noodle recipe and I mentioned pairing it with an off-dry Riesling. This is the wine I had with the recipe and not only is it absolutely stunning, but the food pairing was very satisfying.
A beautifully pronounced nose of ripe peach, honeysuckle, ginger spice and lemon custard. An off-dry wine with a pleasant indication of sweetness. The body is very well developed and silky with citrus, honey, pineapple juice and pear on the palate.
The finish is long and I would say that this wine could be aged for a bit longer. Complex and succulent, this wine would pair very well with duck confit or my previously blogged chili-mango noodle recipe.
