The Cline Viognier is a full bodied, medium-dry wine with acidity that can range widely from flat to crisp, depending on the circumstances in which you drink it. It's probably a bit more flat when drunk alone, but it acquires some nice crispness when paired with the right foods. The flavors are predominantly floral with just a bit of fruit and a nice mineral edge. One important thing to remember is that the Cline Viognier is much better when served cold - when the temperature of the wine goes up a bit the alcohol becomes too prominent, ruining the flavor.
The Susana Balbos’s Crios is a medium-bodied Torrontes which starts sweet and finishes dry, making it a great wine for a variety of situations and dishes. The flavors are primarily floral and tropical fruit, especially melons. The acid is crisp and refreshing and the texture is creamy.
We tried the Sterling Vintner's Collection 2007 Chardonnay with pasta carbonara, thus testing the Chardonnay with both smoky flavors and creamy textures. We found that the pairing was pretty good — the Sterling Chardonnay was sharper, tarter, and drier when paired with the pasta carbonara, which in turn made eating the pasta more enjoyable.
The Valckenberg Ortega Trockenbeerenauslese is a heavy dessert wine so we paired it with several popular dessert choices. Unfortunately we disagreed on just how well the Valckenberg Ortega paired with several of them.
