What to have with Shrimp Dinner?

Decided to sauté up some shrimp tonight with garlic, ginger and a healthy dose of crushed red pepper.  To satisfy my Paleo side I had some fresh, spiralized, crisply sautéed zucchini.  To make my Italian restaurateur husband happy — pasta. Some roasted peppers, zucchini, baby eggplant and cherry tomatoes completed the meal.  

I think we were in heaven when we sat down to eat.  My husband wanted some white wine.  I knew I didn’t have enough Chateau St. Michelle Dry Riesling to share, so I opened the only other white I could find in the cooler–William Hill Unfiltered Chardonnay 2012. I really like this wine despite its oak regimen.  It reminds me of summer grilling–flavors of grilled peaches and pineapple along with the fresh taste of ripe yellow apples. Don’t forget a dessert of flakey buttery pie crust, because that is all in the bottle, too. All darn good!! 

Looooooong finish.  That yellow Apple just stays with you.  Gotta love it. 

From a pairing standpoint, the Riesling stood up far better to the ginger and crushed red pepper.  For dessert, the William Hill Unfiltered Chardonnay is, all by itself,  a fine finish to the meal.  And my husband did the dishes.  All is good in the world.
