Recipe for those incredible Peaches

  1. 2 1/2 cups dry Riesling (We recommend Claiborne & Churchill 2014 Reisling)
  2. 1/4 cup sugar
  3. 1/2 vanilla bean, split and scraped
  4. 5 tarragon sprigs
  5. 4 ripe but firm freestone peaches, halved and pitted
  6. 2/3 cups sour cream
  7. Salt


For this Recipe:

In a medium saucepan, combine the wine, sugar, vanilla bean with seeds and 
1 tarragon sprig and bring just to a boil. Add the peach halves and simmer over moderate heat, turning occasionally, until tender, about 10 minutes. Let cool completely, then refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour.

In a medium bowl, whisk the sour cream with a big pinch of salt. Dollop the cream 
in bowls and top with the peach halves and some of their poaching liquid. Garnish each plate with a tarragon sprig and serve.


The peaches can be refrigerated in their poaching liquid for up to 3 days.
