What shall we have with our Riesling? Sushi!

That was the question I asked Heather. We visit many of the Finger Lakes wineries, and during our last trip to Heron Hill we purchased the Dry Riesling. I thought sushi would be perfect (and she agreed)! Light and spicy (with the addition of ginger and wasabi) would pair with the wine nicely. The wine was excellent… as are most Finger Lakes Rieslings. Crisp, light and somewhat sweet for a “dry” (1.8% r.s.), with a nice citrus tone.

At some point, I hope to do a post on making sushi. This, however, we got at the store to go… and passed these giant aloe leaves on the way to the counter. I couldn’t resist. So this is my simple reminder to “present” the food that you serve, since I’m positive that good-looking food tastes better. 🙂

Present your sushi...then eat it!

  1. it is indeed a banner year for rieslings. with or without sushi. though, sushi never looked better than this!

    • Very good rieslings all around the area. Let me know how long you’ll be around and how far you want to go, and I”ll give you a few ideas. Take a few laps around Watkins Glen International too!
