Masala Dosa by Bites of India
(Ravenhill Rd + Botanic Avenue)
Pair with Mönchhof Salve Riesling 2021
SERVE with a selection of chutneys, pickles or other Indian vegetable side dishes
The Mönchhof (the “Monks House or Monks Court”), formerly a possession of the Cistercian Abbey at Himmerod, is one of the oldest wine estates in the Mosel valley.
This is one of the few vineyards in the whole wine growing region planted on volcanic soil in combination with red slate soil (rhyolithe). You can only find this rare combination of soils in this part of the Mosel valley.
An off dry Riesling with spicy notes of red currant, green apple and grapefruit, on the palate slight fruity sweetness balanced by a refreshing acidity, very quaffable.
Pairing suggestions: The Salve is a wonderful pairing to the Masala Dosa or a companion for tender veal, trout or salad with turkey. But most importantly, it is a stunning aperitif!
100% Riesling. 11% Alc.
