I looove that there are so many dry Rieslings around now. Riesling has had a bit of a reputation as being sweet, which turned a lot of people off. However, winemakers have heard our calls and there’s now an abundance of dry style Riesling around.
I chose this Cooter & Cooter 2017 Watervale Riesling for this month’s TC Wine Club. It’s from the Clare Valley in South Australia. I decided to make the matching recipe – ‘Za’atar Chicken with Garlic, Chickpeas, and Yoghurt’.
As I couldn’t find any za’atar in the supermarket, I made it from scratch which meant I got to use my new mortar and pestle I got for my birthday in Jan – I was very excited!
We cracked into the wine during the cooking process and while we were eating. Naturally!
In the glass, it’s a lovely light lemon shade. The nose made me think of juicy pears, lemongrass, and white flowers. While in the mouth it’s incredibly refreshing and crisp with crunchy green apples and a nice refreshing citrus finish. Y-U-M!
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
