The briny flavors of the corned beef and cabbage worked very nicely with Valckenberg 2009 Madonna. Accompanied with a little sweetness, and the Valckenberg Madonna Kabinett 2009 was perfect.
From the Rheinhessen, the largest German wine region in both area and production, the Madonna is a blend of the grapes riesling, Müller-Thurgau, Silvaner and Kerner. The bouquet on the Valckenberg 2009 Madonna is initially tight, then opens to a sweet, fruity bouquet. The palate is delicious with a taste of ripe honeydew melon, with just a touch of acidity.
Valckenberg 2009 Madonna is paired perfectly with the corned beef and cabbage.
