Ginger Carrot Soup
Two Mountain Riesling is not sweet, but rather very fruity with nice acidity. The brightness of the wine, floral aromatics, and the crisp mouthfeel compliment the spice of the ginger and onion, while balancing the depth of the carrots and the freshness of the cilantro. The two together make for a perfect combination of end of summer and beginning of fall flavors.
