Recommended by Erin Neilon, General Beverage

"Nothing signifies local support and tradition like the Friday Fish Fry. With definite roots in our strong German ancestry, what better varietal to pair with a fish fry than a German one: Riesling! And what better than a locally vinified wine, but Wollersheim Dry Riesling, American Dry White Wine?

If this information doesn’t have you running to your local grocer for a bottle, this might: it’s delicious!! And it’s just the thing to compliment that bit of sweetness in your cod batter, and the salt of your potato pancake. As the ad team at Outpost Foods, Wauwatosa, has posted: “Wollersheim: We’ve been local since before it was cool!” TGIFFF!
"

 

Tasting Notes by Jessica Barger of Mason Street Grill

This Wisconsin-native winery's Riesling is loaded with aromas of pears, quince and orange blossoms. It tastes crisp yet acidic, like a fresh apple juice, almost like cider! It actually tastes like you're biting into a fresh green apple. This wine is very bright and sweet, with the crispness and tart qualities of the skin. The sip ends with Meyer lemon lingering in your mouth. Really tasty! We want to pour this on a salad or dip some crispy fish in it. Literally, pour it on! It's more medium-dry, palatable for everyone—whether you're into Riesling or not!

"A great Friday fish fry is fun and relaxing when shared with friends or family. Perhaps the biggest decision of the evening is brandy or whiskey in that old fashioned and perch, walleye, or cod on the plate. But don’t forget to order a refreshing and crisp glass of wine! Cave de Pomérols Picpoul de Pinet offers limey citrus notes and bright acidity to accompany your fish. In France, Picpoul is a natural companion to seafood and oysters. It is moderate in alcohol, somewhat dry, light-bodied and so easy to enjoy!"

 

Tasting Notes by Jessica Barger of Mason Street Grill

French whites are some of my favorite in the world. This wine, made from Picpoul de Pinet—yes, that's the grape—is so unique and versatile. The first wafts of this wine recall my teen years drinking Sunny Delight, or opening a can of Lite Fruit Cocktail. However, there is a fun balance of salinity and limestone and a lingering hint of candied ginger. The mouthfeel is light and thin, but has more minerality, like wet stone. It tastes like fresh-cut limes with and nice grassy note near the end. The combination is almost like gnawing on the white part of a watermelon rind.

Overall, the nose is misleading to the palate ... it smells much sweeter than how it really tastes, which is kind of a fun balance. Funky fresh! This would be ideal for broiled fish, or a catch that has a lighter flavor that will be gentle with this wine and would be great with scallops. Buckley's fish fry would be perfect for sipping such a sophisticated wine.

"Perennial value grand slam. Off white in color and extremely aromatic. This wine goes great with breaded fish. The tropical fruit flavors explode onto the palate, accenting the flavors of fish."

 

Tasting Notes by Jessica Barger of Mason Street Grill

This immediately strikes you with aromas of baked pear, lychee and soapy floral notes. This reminded me of the Peachy-O's candy. The flavors match the smells that this wine exhibits—lots of peach and apricot—and almost tastes like my grandmother's pineapple upside-down cake. Our first thoughts are that this is a great alternative to Riesling but if riesling is a turn-off ... has a great dryness or acidity to the candy-like white peach and pineapple Jolly Rancher. This lingers but in a delicate way ... the lack of severe acid is soft and makes you want more. I could see myself slugging this behind a beer fermenter while listening to polka at Lakefront Brewery's fish fry.

a picture of Gazela Rosé
By Cory Sebastian of Sebastian's Fine Food & Spirits

Vinho Verde, Portugal


Gazela is a Portuguese rosé, comparable to the fruity, nose-tickling effervescence of the New Age Rosé. This is a really fun, easy-drinking wine. The grapes in Gazela are the same as those typically used to make port. Unlike the other rosés, Gazela is produced like a white varietal, and the juice has no skin contact. I wouldn't consider this to be a food wine; instead, simply drink this on its own and enjoy its bright fruitiness and sweetness. Gazela is the least expensive of the lot, retailing for about $7 (good news, because it is VERY easy to drink). With only 10% alcohol content and a low price, you might want to grab a second bottle right away.
