Racy Riesling & Silky Spätburgunder: Set the Mood with German Wines

IMG_1042Sipping pretty is easy with a glass of refreshing and food-friendly Louis Guntrum Riesling Feinherb 2012 ($12). Off-dry (slightly sweet) with juicy flavors of peach and citrus that are balanced by racy acidity and marvelous minerality; this flirty lip-smacking wein is a great apéritif but also has enough structure to pair beautifully with spicy foods and custardy desserts.

Müller-Catoir Haardt Spätburgunder 2012 ($40) is a silky and dry Pinot Noir with fruit-forward finesse. Flavors of strawberry, blueberry, and hibiscus come alive in the glass with a herbal hint of rosemary. If you're already thinking about your Thanksgiving menu, this light-bodied red wine with silky tannins is a winning match with everything from turkey to roasted sweet potatoes.
