We talked earlier about how this is a great year for nectarines. IMO-this is the best year for nectarines I have ever witnessed if not in recent memory. Tonight, I am drinking a low grade Sauvignon Blanc along with the aforementioned Nectarines....what a combo.
The sweetness of the nectarines is not only bringing out the lighter citrus notes of the wine but also bringing out hints of honey. Honest to god this is like drinking honey nectar. Then after drinking the wine and getting the semi tartness it brings-the sweetness of the nectarines is totally enhanced to the 10th degree. Almost tastes like a mango.
For you white wine fans- this is a fantastic pairing. I am not a big enough connoisseur to recommend a cheese with this but I would think a soft brie or maybe a mild white cheddar would pair incredibly.
Would love for someone to put this to the test.
