FINALLY SOME WINE! About half-way through the event, I needed a drink! Ironstone Vineyards, a family run winery with vineyards in Lodi and the Sierra foothills delivered with their Obsession Symphony blended white wine with a watermelon salad and spicy jalapeno dish.
Made from 85% Symphony and 15% Chenin Blanc grapes, this is a wine for spicy food my friends. It’s on the sweeter side with rich fruit flavors, so I didn’t think it did much for the watermelon sample. But the nice acidic finish took the bite right out of the jalapenos- perfect pairing.
I don’t drink a lot of sweet white wine on its own, but Obsession will be my go-to for my next posole dinner party or attempt at Thai.
