Wine & Food Pairing

Like other muscat wines the Alice White Lexia is very sweet but it is also very flavorful. It tastes strongly of mangos with some melons. It has a slightly tart finish, but I think it would be better if it were a little more acidic so that it would have a crisper finish. Alice White's Lexia is made from Muscat grapes in South Eastern Australia and is one of Alice White's most recent lines of wine. The Muscat grape appears to do quite well in the climate of South Eastern Australia, allowing Alice White to produce an unusually good desert wine.

 

Alice White 2007 Lexia Tasting Notes & Review

Color & Clarity
The Alice White Lexia is clear and bright, pale gold in color, and has green tinges around the edges.

Nose
The clean, moderate aromas of the Alice White Lexia are distinctly floral and fruity. The primary scent seems to be honeysuckle, but there is also apricot and peach.

Palate
Like other muscat wines the Alice White Lexia is very sweet but it is also very flavorful. It tastes strongly of mangos with some melons. It has a slightly tart finish, but I think it would be better if it were a little more acidic so that it would have a crisper finish.

Food Pairing
Sweet muscat wines are not best with cheese, but we tried several to see what this Alice White Lexia would be like. Sharp cheddar cheese isn't too bad because it brings out the fruit flavors while Swiss cheese is fairly neutral. Chevre is a poor match and the Lexia actually sucks the flavor out of aged Gouda. Feta seems to intensify the wine's aromas, but is otherwise neutral.

As far as other foods go, the Alice White Lexia is quite good with General Tso's Chicken, but only a mild version of it. The sweetness of the wine is cut a bit and the fruit flavors are left intact while the acidity is increased a bit, providing a more crisp finish. When paired with spicy foods the Alice White Lexia intensifies the heat but without intensified flavors to match. It's neutral with buffalo wings, though, perhaps because of the blue cheese dressing.

Like other muscat wines the Alice White Lexia is best as a desert wine, but it doesn't necessarily pair well with every sort of desert. It isn't very good with intense chocolate — the strong chocolate flavors kill off the wine's sweetness and what's left is unpleasant. Mildly sweet deserts, like fresh fruit, seem to work best.

Recipes
I don't think I'd add Alice White Lexia to any recipes; just stick to drinking it with either mildly sweet deserts or mildly sweet main dishes.
