Food Pairings

Pairs well with breakfast dishes like omelets and scrambled eggs (especially if you've added hot sauce). Also with soups and appetizers like New England clam chowder or crab cakes. Meat dishes including chicken, roasted meats in pan sauces, most spicy dishes. Great with fresh fruit. Rieslings are one of the best food pairing wines.
