I know you are getting ready for Thanksgiving but I wanted to take the time and send a quick note saying how grateful I am for your continued support these past three years. I have truly enjoyed sharing with you all and look forward to sharing more pairings, experiences and suggestions with you this upcoming year. I hope this Thanksgiving is a time of joy, laughter and great memories with those you love and cherish.
XOXO, Smiling Danny
Menu: Oven Baked Fried Shrimp, Broccoli and Feta Salad, and Sauteed Green Beans with Crispy Bacon and Fresh Garlic.
Wine Pairing: Dr. Loosen Dry Riesling, 2017, Mosel, Germany
Notes: The wine provided a lemon dessert finish to the overall plate versus a dry finish on its own. This wine reminds me of a crisp Chardonnay. Because of the buttery notes in the wine; my green beans became garlic butter green beans. The buttery notes also provided a butter finish to all my veggies on the plate. The lemon notes in the wine added a nice splash of citrus to the shrimp and provided an overall fresh Summer taste to the palate.
I hope you enjoy this pairing as much as I did; especially if you need a hint of Summer on these cold Fall days.
Salu’d, Smiling Danny
