  • Now and Zen Silvaner Blend Alsace Aoc Alsace White 2008


    We were quite pleasantly surprised by this blend of 4 white wines. Having a spicy pork vindaloo, we knew we would need a cooling wine to have with it. This worked great! Not a great wine, but certainly tasty and cooling. Read More

  • Now and Zen Silvaner Blend Alsace Aoc Wasabi White 2006


    Soft with nice acidity. Had with some veggie sushi at Mio Sushi outside of Portland. I can definitely see this pairing well with something like spicy tuna. Decent value at $6 a glass. Read More

    This wasn't what I expected. I used it to make Greek Shrimp and I had to have it to taste. After the first glass it was not so bad but as far as cooking with it I was very disappointed. My better half enjoyed the the dish very much so I guess it is my opinion that I most likely would not venture to buy another bottle. Read More

  • Now and Zen Silvaner Blend Alsace Aoc Alsace White 2006


    This is a great table wine for rich, spicy foods -- particularly Thai. It holds its own and is a strong complement to any hearty dish. And the price is certainly right, which always helps! 8) Read More

  • Have a '97 Sylvaner Eiswein. Thought given the high acid commonly found in this type of wine it might age a little. Might I have already missed the drinking window? Thanks in advance.e Read More

  • Bruder Dr Becker Silvaner Spatlese 2004


    Liked it. Has the initial brightness of a Sauvingnon blanc and the body of a full chardonnay that follows. I imagine it would be good with grilled food. Read More

  • Hans Wirsching Silvaner Spätlese Trocken Iphöfer Kronsberg 2006


    Nose: straw, pear, kiwi, green apples. Acidic, but nicely balanced on the front end. Maybe a bit too much citrus on the finish. Read More
