The acid from the Prosecco cancels the acid from the tomatoes letting the palate enjoy the sweetness and freshness from the to- matoes. Also the Riessling, Reserve, Cave Spring, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada, 2007 con- trast the saltiness from the cheese with the sweetness from the wine creating a balance. Other wines that would pair with this course are:-Chateau Bonnet, MEBC, Entre Deux Mers, Bordoux 2008 This wine will cancel the acid from the tomatoes with the acid from the wine allowing other flavors to come out like the sweetness and freshness.
