New York State Wines
2011 Dr. Konstantin Frank Dry Riesling
Racy, very dry and citrusy, this consistently outclasses its price.
Pairing: Ginger-Roasted Chicken
Chicken Curry with Potatoes and Squash
Pairing: 2011 Paumanok Chenin Blanc
Chenin Blanc has lots of tropical flavors and a soft acidic edge—qualities that complement this mild curry.
Winter-Vegetable Shepherd's Pie
A lively, beautifully balanced alternative to the winery's pricier, very limited Old Vines Merlot.
Pairing: 2007 Lenz Estate Selection Merlot
Penne with Roasted Butternut Squash and Ham
A stunning, subtly sweet white that rivals top Alsace versions of this grape.
Pairing: 2010 Dr. Konstantin Frank Reserve Gewürztraminer
Brandade de Morue au Gratin (Whipped Salt Cod Gratin)
Pairing: 2010 Silver Thread Dry Riesling
Bright, dry Riesling is a good match for rich fish dishes like this gratin.
Spiced Chicken Legs with Apricots and Raisins
Several years of bottle age have given this perfumed, creamy white additional spice notes.
Pairing: 2007 Lenz Gewürztraminer
Sautéed German Sausages with Bacon and Apple Sauerkra
Apple and grapefruit notes have a hint of sweetness.
Pairing: 2009 Hermann J. Wiemer Semi-Dry Riesling
Stuffed Pork Tenderloins with Bacon and Apple-Riesling Sauce
This crisp Riesling is an extremely good wine for the price.
Pairing: 2010 Red Newt Circle Label Riesling
