I'm so glad I did, because the range of answers I got - and the wonderful discussions we had - confirmed that, truly, there's no "right" answer when it comes down to it, and the anticipation is part of the pleasure.
That said, the choices were good ones, and I offer them to you for your consideration. The wine that was suggested most often was Riesling, both dry and semi-sweet. Appropriate since the grape is characterized by a crisp green apple note on the finish, and when it's got some residual sugar, there's a hint of honey.
Gewurtztraminer, with its notes of tropical lychee, was another popular choice. Along those same lines were Albarino, Moscato (with its lovely bubbles, too), and Honey Mead.
