Food Pairings for Sheldrake Point Riesling Dry
A light yellow in the glass with a subtle greenish tint, the nose is fresh with ripe, crisp apple and lemon zest aromas accented by brown spice notes. Balance is the key to any great Riesling and winemaker Dave Breeden achieves that here.This is a dry, light, clean wine with citrus flavors up front that turn to green apple and pears on the finish with just a little mineral quality. Fresh, palate-cleansing acidity balances the substantial fruit flavor here. Very well done and a great choice with anything from Thanksgiving turkey to Chinese takeout
