Guilty of not having posted in almost a week!

Yes, totally guilty! But time has been running away from me, so that's why. I have been enjoying some nice wine with food lately, so here are some pics.

The above is a dry Riesling from the Wachau, Austria - 2006 Johann Donabaum Riesling Bergterrassen Federspiel. We had this wine with a delicious chicken done on the grill - the recipe courtesy of my coworker, Ronnie. The chicken was halved and literally roasted on the low heat side of the grill, after being marinated in olive oil, Dijon mustard, herbs de Provence, garlic powder, salt, black pepper. Wonderful! Also done on the grill were a couple of halved nectarines with some sugar, and some summer squash. What a meal!

Truthfully, though, a Riesling with some residual sugar on it would have paired even better. Especially with those great grilled nectarines!

Ah, here we go. Good ol' 2007 Monchhof Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Spatlese, shown here alongside some grilled vegetables: yellow and red tomatoes and Chinese greens doused with sesame oil and a dash of soy sauce. Yum yum.

Well, looking forward to a tasting tomorrow evening of German Rieslings, a release of the the 2007s that we have, along with some 2006s that I love. I'll be writing about that tasting here, so stay tuned!

Great photos, looks like a delicious meal. Lucky you had that Monchhof on hand huh? I bet that Riesling was wonderful with those grilled nectarines!
