Wine Of The Day 14th November 2007

Wednesday, 14 November 2007

Today's wine has been chosen to compliment Éamonn's duck dish!

Given the spice component and the richness of this dish a white wine is arguably the better option, because of its freshness and pure flavour. An unusual but exciting match is this delicious dry Riesling which has wonderful freshness with captivating floral and lime fruit notes.

A wonderful crisp, fresh mouth-wateringly, dry fresh Riesling with wonderful lime and floral aromas and flavours. The freshenss and the purity of the fruit flavour will work wonderfully with spicy foods.
