German wine to have with Potato Soup

Postby Gary Bobier » Sat Jul 21, 2012 7:15 pm

I am doing a wine dinner in a few weeks and will be serving a German Potato soup with leeks bacon and cream. I need a quality german wine to pair with it.

Thanks in advance.

A Spatlese from MSR would work fine.

As would pretty much any good 'normal' spatlese, kabinett, off-dry or dry, or sylvaner, from across the country. As long as the wine is not too sour (so it gets overwhelmed by the cream) or too rich (so the pairing becomes cloying), this sounds like a pretty neutral dish that would go well with a wide range of ripe yet minerally wines.

Plus, I've never been wild about wine and soup matches. Not that they're bad, they're just not 'great' because of the two liquids thing. So I wouldn't break my head trying to find the 'perfect' match. You should have lots of wiggle room and then plenty of space to enjoy two delicious items.

I don't know where you live or what your selections are like, but a good weissburgunder or grauburgunder would also go well.

Gary's in Las Vegas. Should have no end of good options there.
