Default TN: Riesling and Bdx with Chinese-Australian fusion food

Last year Betsy stumbled across a cooking show on PBS featuring Kylie
Kwong, a Chinese-Australian chef. She liked the show and made a few
dishes which turned out well. So I got her KK's cookbook for
Christmas. We've had multiple recipes from it the last 2 nights:

Tuesday chicken wings with oyster sauce, fried rice, and baby bok
choy. 2 Rieslings made an appearance
*
2001 Carl Schmitt-Wagner "Longuicher Maximiner Herrenberg"Auslese (AP
#18) (Mosel-Saar-Ruwer)
Not a producer that I really know, but a solid performance. I worried
that it might be too sweet, but it's actually showing nice sugar/acid
balance, floral nose, lots of petrol over yellow pit fruits, more
graceful than powerful. Good length, petrol more intense on day 2.
Holds up well. B+

2008 Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Himmelreich "Anrecht" Spatlese
Clean white peach fruit laced with citrus, excellent nervous acidity,
good length. Fresh, lovely, a real delight. Maybe even better on day
2. A-
*
Last night she made stir-fired duck breast with 5 spice, steamed
silken tofu with spinach and garlic, mushroom/arugula/fennel salad,
and steamed shrimp wonton (Dave declared while he liked previous night
a lot, this was his dream meal. I declared it might be my dream meal
if I wasn't doing the cleanup!).. We had the leftover Rieslings, but
Dave prefers red and I thought the duck could use some. Didn't want to
go with pricey Burgundy with those spices, so turned to $15 Bordeaux.
Opened the 2005 Quintessence de Peybonhomme (1er Cotes de Blaye). Nose
of crushed berries accented with just a little vanilla, on palate a
combo of cassis and redder fruits (plums). Light tannins, good length.
Solid example of satellite Bordeaux, not profound but satisfying. B

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an
excellent*wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I
wouldn't*drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I
offer no*promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of
consistency.**

Dale, which book did you get? I love her cooking show but don't have
any of her recipes.
