White Wine

Peller Estates Private Reserve Riesling 2007, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada: A zippy, lemon-fresh quaffer with notes of white peach, melon and pink grapefruit. Mouth-watering and tasty without a splinter of wood. Perfect as an aperitif, particularly around 6 pm when you're ready to relax. In my Drinks Matcher (, I pair it with a wide range of dishes, from seafood and salads, to chicken and pork. Pair with: soft cheeses, roast chicken, pork chops, vegetarian dishes and lively conversation. Drink: 2009-2011. 641969 11% D 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 88/100.
