Food Pairings for Bonny Doon Vineyard Riesling Pacific Rim Sweet Riesling
The Washington grapes that we choose for the Sweet Riesling are picked riper than the grapes for the dry Riesling. We use a small amount of yeast to encourage the fermentation to stick — or keep it from becoming completely dry. We ferment at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks. Like our Dry Riesling, this is another no oak, no malolactic wine. To stop the fermentation we use our centrifuge, which separates the yeast and the wine... this concludes the fermentation. We leave a good amount of carbon dioxide in the wine to create a lively feeling to the wine — although it's not spritzy. The resulting wine is moderately sweet and refreshingly low in alcohol — less than 9% — with flavors of pineapple and peach. Our Sweet Riesling brings perfect balance to all fiery fare — especially Thai, Szechwan and Caribbean cuisine... or simply enjoy as an aperitif. ~ The Winery ~
Good wine, great value. I asked the folks at Calvert Woodley (in Washington DC) for dry reisling, expecting to be shown something from Europe. I was surprised when I was shown the "Pacific Rim 2007 Dry Reisling." I really like this wine! I guess dry reislings are still a little sweet. But, true to form, it is sweet, crisp and fruity. It goes down very smoothly. No bitterness or tanins; the wine is crisp but not acidic, which in the Summer is quite nice. I am giving this wine 4 glasses.
Good pairing for Asian cuisine.
