Fall Pick 2022

Selbach Oster Riesling Feinherb


Surdyk's Price

Sold out

The late summer/early fall is one of the most exciting times for a person with interest in food and drink. One day youre at the farmers market in sweater weather, and the next its 90˚ and youre squeezing in one last lake day. How do you plan for such weather shifts? One easy spot to start is with what to drink. Wine people sing the praises of Riesling, for good reason. It runs a gamut of sweetness, its structured enough to hold up to food, and its usually not overly boozy. The Selbach Oster Feinherb makes a great wine for this transition season. Lightly floral, bright fruit, and only a touch of sugar makes this refreshing in the heat. It holds up to grilled vegetables, fish, and pork. What if the temperature drops? No problem! Try this with käsespätzle (Alpine dumplings sauced with rich cheeses, bacon, and onion). And if its a lazy day, it’s equally delicious with cheeses and ham (especially the Alex cheese and Alto Adige Speck next door).
