Advent – Day 18

Wine: Sweet Riesling
Winery: American Vintners
Cheese: Wensleydale with Cranberries

Day 18’s wine is a repeat of the Sweet Riesling or as my wife Carleen puts it, the “so-called ‘Sweet’ Riesling.” 🙂 Anyway, we paired it with the Wensleydale and it tasted pretty good together. The Cranberries really started bringing out the fruit of the Riesling, and the wine was sweet enough to avoid tasting bitter (usually dry wines tend to taste bitter when following sweet foods, which is why you don’t often eat dessert before dinner). Tomorrow I plan on tasting and reviewing two wines, so consider this sort of a day off. 🙂
