Henry Of Pelham Reserve Off-Dry Riesling 2009
The grapes for this wine are left on the vine well into October, allowing them to reach the desired ripeness for this rich and vibrant Riesling. Resulting is an interplay of lush citrus and floral accents with a hint of sweetness, balanced by a brilliant seam of acidity. Amazing value that will age well for 5-7 years. Divine wine that will go do notes. This will go down a storm with Asian and spices. Balanced with fresh peach and pear notes. Lovely! Riesling food pairings: lemongrass chicken with green-chilli sauce, cham-pong (spicy noodles with seafood) featuring red chillies and lime, pork chops with caramelized apples, spicy Thai dishes.

Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|Jason Solanki rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Candied lime, citrus, mineral, wax and petrol aromas. Tangy citrus, lime, with a slight touch of sweetness on the palate. Bright seam of acidity cuts through the middle. Off-dry. Could be cellared a few more years, but is definitely delicious now. Recommended if you like wines that are slightly sweet. Enjoyed this with spinach & potatoes (Indian dish). Tasted Feb/2012.

What an interesting Riesling! Refreshing lemon-lime notes stand-up nicely to the chalky minerality and white grapefruit on the bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium dry, with high acid, and a medium body. Fresh lemon juice, petrol notes, and limestone all play well together. A slight prickle on the tongue makes this extra special. Bright and clean. Drink now. Tasted June 2013.
|Lovely aromas of pear, citrus zest, paraffin, candied lime and mineral lead to a medium-bodied palate that expertly balances vibrant acidity, tangy fruit and a kiss of sweetness. Can cellar 3-5 years, yet drinking beautifully now. Try with smoked salmon, or this will also stand up to moderately spicy dishes. Source: Vintages Wine Panel|
