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
Riesling too overbearing?
I recognize Rioja as Spanish...my memories are of a rough red table wine...but I could be mistaken.
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.
I'm still cranky.
