Shiraz works very well with meats
such as duck, pheasant, richly
flavored red meats, vegetables and
pizza (Slinkard, 2013b).

(Martin, 2012).
Riesling is highly fragrant, very delicious
and a food friendly wine.

zippy, full of lime and other citrus fruits
Climatically diverse conditions are the
best for conditions for Riesling.

plenty of sun and protected from frost.
