Last night I opened a 2003 August Kesseler Rudesheimer Bischofsberg Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel, and it was extraordinary.
I had Thai - red curry and basil chicken - a pretty standard choice for me when drinking Riesling.
But this wine was so amazing, that I couldn't help but think I wasn't doing it any favors by drinking it with my humdrum curry. A Kabinet would have probably been a better choice (the usual choice too) but I really wanted to try this bottle.
I'm glad I did, but what would have been a better pairing for this extraordinary bottle?
