Weekend Wine and Food Pairing – Riesling and Fish Tacos!

Last week, I was enjoying some Riesling samples from Alsace when I came across a fantastic pairing…fish tacos.  As I ate a taco filled with ahi, avocado, and pico de gallo, I realized that Riesling really made the flavors in the tacos come alive.

When picking a bottle, definitely look for a dry Riesling with a citrus packed palate and a nice kick of acidity.  My favorite Riesling with the tacos from the evening’s lineup was Domaine Ostertag Riesling Vignoble d’E 2011.  Full of citrus and peach with a lovely lift from the acidity makes it an awesome combination with fish tacos.  Hope you have a chance to enjoy this wine and food pairing over the weekend!
