Thinking about what wine to serve? I have a few out-of-the-box ideas including a new Riesling and Rosé, designed to make you think twice about what wines to put on your table!
Schloss Vollrads Estate Dry Riesling
Up first, a dry Riesling for platefuls of turkey and more helpings of ham! You’ll smell a hint of honey on the Schloss Vollrads Dry Riesling and taste apples, pears, even a kiss of lemon. This wine is medium bodied and high enough in acidity to pair with all kinds of foods. It’s priced around $15 a bottle.
Martin Ray Rosé
This food-friendly wine is a rosé made from Pinot Noir. The Martin Ray Rosé features bright cherries and strawberry tastes, with a very balanced acidity. It’s priced at about $12 a bottle.
Brady Vineyard Zinfandel
We always think of Zinfandels as great grilling wines to pair with barbecue, because of their big jammy and smoky flavors. But how about this lighter Zin for a wonderful wine pairing for the holidays? The Brady Vineyard from Paso Robles. The winemaker is a Texan! It’s bright and balanced, with a touch of vanilla. It’s about $19 a bottle.
As always, I found all my wines at H-E-B!
