Fall is here, as much as I hate to admit it, and the rain is moving in. In my mind, nothing cures the dull-drums like roasted chicken. I love the way the cooking chicken fills the kitchen and the house with warm flavors.
Another great thing about roasted chicken: it pairs well with white wine. I had a bottle of Barrister Winery2011 Klipsun Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc. I have a soft spot for Barrister Winery. Last April, I went on a wonderful tour of the winery and have savored that experience.
The Sauvignon Blanc was faint yellow, almost clear and had a very light lemony smell. The wine had a lovely lemon and grapefruit palette, with a sweet finish. It paired nicely with the chicken, and rounded out my meal nicely.
It also got me wondering – why am I just putting up pictures of wine, when I should include my meal too – after all, it may be more entertaining to readers to see pictures of something yummy…hmm…food for thought I guess.
Anyway, I was very pleased with the Barrister Sauvignon Blanc and that I succeeded in a nice pairing. But then again, can you really go wrong with wine and chicken?
