Russian white wines have a good combination of price and quality. Modern producers use Chardonnay, Muscat, Viognier, Riesling, and Müller-Thurgau varieties to produce great refreshing drinks. Their bouquet has subtle nuances of flowers, bright notes of lemons, melon, apples, sweet apricots, lime and birch bark. The taste of white wine is fresh and light, and the aftertaste is harmonious and long. Russian white wines pair well with sturgeon fish, rastegayi, blinis with caviar, and other traditional Russian dishes. They can also be served with Asian and Mediterranean dishes. Dessert wines harmonize with pastries, sweets and fruits.
