Our Riesling Is Nothing Like The Others You’ve Tried: And Here’s How To Get It Saturday
As Americans, many of us shy away from Rieslings, thinking the often fruity and sweet wine is better suited for dessert. However, as the Austrians have long known, this doesn’t have to be a Riesling’s sole fate.
An Austrian Riesling is known for its crispness and dryness, making it a thirst-quenching wine that’s still ideal for the summertime thanks to its clean and brisk refreshing taste. And our 2021 Riesling is just that – which we’ll release this weekend at our Pittstown farm.
At Mount Salem Kitchen this Saturday, our visitors can join us under our tent in the meadow, where we’ll pour glasses of this Riesling alongside chicken sate – which is grilled and marinated chicken eaten off wood skewers – served with our Haus and Gewurz sauces.
Those sauces represent two more Mount Salem Kitchen creations. Our Haus Sauce is made from Dijon mustard, Worcestershire, oil, lemon juice, a variety of spices and anchovy; while our Gewurz Sauce is a tomato ketchup seasoned like the finest of curries.
But on Saturday, the 2021 Riesling will certainly steal the show, as it always has. Many of our first-time visitors who have told us that they don’t like Rieslings end up trying ours and leaving with a case.
Paired with the chicken sate enhanced with finishing sauces that are quintessential Viennese and Berliner street foods, a glass of our 2021 Riesling is the best way to get a taste of Austria in the late summertime, all under Hunterdon County skies and beside our summer kitchen.
