67587 750 mL (M) $16.95
Riesling is a grape that clearly reflects where it's grown - hence the mirror-image label and narcissist moniker. You'll love yourself for trying this Niagara Riesling with its aromas of lime, tangerine, pear, binned apple and mineral. Try it with spicy chicken pad Thai or pan-seared scallops.

1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
1⁄4 cup (50 mL) finely chopped basil
(preferably Thai basil)
1 tbsp (15 mL) grated ginger
1 tbsp (15 mL) grated garlic
1 tbsp (15 mL) dark brown sugar
2 lbs (1 kg) boneless skinless
chicken breasts, cut into 1 to 2-inch
(2.5 to 5-cm) chunks
Coconut Dipping Sauce
1 can coconut milk, 400 mL
1 stalk lemon grass, tough outer

2 slices of ginger, 1⁄4 inch (5 mm) thick
1 tsp (5 mL) lime zest
1 tbsp (15 mL) lime juice
1 tsp (5 mL) fish sauce
6 bamboo skewers, 8-inch (20-cm)
each, soaked in water for 30 minutes or more
