@panzade,
Half-dry white wine..

But I don't know about Floridians tastes and what's available there...

@panzade,
We're having a goose too, panzade, but I am not in charge of wine - I know it
will be red and probably from South Africa or France.
You shouldn't drink white wine with it, perhaps a Bordeaux would suit nicely.

I have to agree with both of you, I think a white would be good. Riesling too overbearing?
I don't want a bully of the vineyard.

LOL, I thought you wrote SHOULD , Cal

@panzade,
Hehe, you drink whatever you want to, panzade. I just think that red wine compliments the goose nicely.

Red Burgundy wines are the best partners for goose. But provided the goose fat is properly drained also well suited are fruitier Clarets as well as some other midweight fruity Reds (see the style finder at the top right of the page which contains a good New World selection). White wines can be problematic with goose though New World oaked Chardonnay will generally be a good companion or try clicking here to see if the more refined Antea Rioja might suit. more

@JPB,
I recognize Rioja as Spanish...my memories are of a rough red table wine...but I could be mistaken.
I'll probably do a red and a white...maybe Mogen D makes a blue.

Thanks for the help guys...

I don't think so.

Slightly cold it would be ok.

Now, if you cook a wild goose, then get this wine:

You are not mistaken.

Rioja is a good red for laborers that need energy and strenght.

Lately, however, they succeed in putting on the market two or three wines that are at the best European levels..

@panzade,
This one is a white.

Pleasantly balanced wine, refined, silky finish. Deep straw coloured. Though oakey, the oak is French so is far removed from old style white Riojas. The Viura or Macabeo still predominates but is vinified zippy and clean. The fermentation in French oak gives pleasure to the last.

@Francis,
no, (yes) -- I meant this is the one they were recommending to go with goose, if one wanted a white wine.

That's the acidity - told you so!! Laughing

We had a superb meal too - it was such a tasty goose, homemade gravy, carrots in pecans, Brussels sprouts with parmesan and pine nuts, mashed potatoes, red cabbage, and German spaetzle for the kids. We sipped South African red wine -
I didn't really look what kind it was. For dessert we had German apple strudel,
chocolate cake, and Lebkuchen.

Why of course, roger, but at your age you need to bring some sort of dowry
with you...

@CalamityJane,
I'd like all the recipes, maybe starting with carrots in pecans, and the brussels sprouts, but all of it. I've always liked lebkuchen, never got near making my own, and no packets of it available around here. Well, I don't mean to give you work, but any cooking tidbits you'd enjoy sharing would be welcome.
