Poor Riesling. Despite affection from wine geeks like me and repeated proclamations that it's the next 'big' thing, it never quite seems to get there. And that's a shame, because there's nothing more delicious than a cold, crisp, just barely off-dry riesling. The bold fruit, the great acide, the sweet-tart tension...this is the ultimate food wine.
You need a 'food wine' for Thanksgiving. Despite conventional wisdom, you're not really trying to match the turkey. No, it's the side dishes loaded with salt, fat, and sweetness that create wine problems. That...and your relatives and friends wanting exactly what they usually drink at home.
Next to the rescue. Pale gold color, with a nose of pear and Granny Smith apple. The palate is chock-full of apple, lemon-lime, and mineral notes. It finishes just barely off-dry, with crisp acidity. It goes with the turkey, the side dishes, Cousin Sue, Great Aunt Fanny, the neighbors....in other words, it goes with Thanksgiving.
