Sometimes months go by and I realize I'm stuck in a wine rut, relying on my go-to bottles of Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc. Sometimes it's good to mix it up, and one of my recent discoveries is Anew Riesling.
Riesling is a white grape variety that originated in Germany and is commonly grown in colder locations. Beautiful bottle, right? I thought so. I hate to admit it, but there's a part of me that is a sucker for a nice label. But on to the wine itself: Anew
Riesling has aromas of bright fruit, spice and citrus. It's a great blend of fruit flavor and balanced acidity.
Flavors of fresh peach and a
hint of spice give Anew a refreshing element. I enjoyed this wine with a dinner of snow crab legs (which happened to be on sale at Publix last week!)
Served with drawn butter and fresh garlic dipping sauce, I thought this Riesling complemented the crab nicely because it's crisp and not too fruity. Cheers to branching out and stepping away from your "go-to" wines, especially when it's for a great food pairing.
