  3. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together ¼ cup of the mayonnaise and the beaten egg.
  4. Gently fold the egg mixture into the crabmeat mixture, taking care not to break up the crab pieces.
  5. Gently divide the mixture into 8 equal portions and pat each into a disc of even thickness and size. Place the crab discs on a plate, cover with plastic wrap and chill for one hour or overnight.
  6. Combine the remaining mayonnaise with 2 Tbsp of the Lime Riesling Oil in a small bowl and refrigerate one hour or overnight.
  7. In a small mixing bowl, combine the remaining 2 Tbsp of the Merlot Flour with the all-purpose flour. Dip each crab cake in the flour mixture and set aside.
  8. Heat the remaining Lime Riesling Oil in a large frying pan until a drop of water flicked into the pan sizzles.
  9. Place the crab cakes in the pan without crowding and fry in batches, 5 minutes per side, until crisp and browned.
  10. Serve with the Lime Riesling Aioli.
