With Jean absent for several nights at a meeting, single parenting means a sharp limitation of dining options. Tonight, Andrew and I decided upon a dinner of cheese ravioli, so I whipped together a concoction of the aforementioned ravioli, pesto, crumbled bacon, peas and asparagus. With this kitchen sink cuisine I poured myself from an open bottle:
2007 Schloss Lieser Riesling QbA
nose: sulfur, peaches, stones, a hint of petrol
palate: crisp acidity, slightly off-dry, peach-lime fruit, strong minerality
Amazingly enough, this was a decent match with the food, and a lovely wine in every respect. Although there was an initial whack of burnt matchstick, it quickly blew off. Purchased for ~$15 during Crush's white wine sale.
