Asparagus Risotto

Matua

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2021

This wine screams where it’s from. Pale lemon with green reflexes, the nose reveals intense aromas of elderflower, asparagus, green bell pepper, gooseberry, ripe peach and melon, followed by a medium body with a pungent acidity, defining the wines distinctive freshness. Drink now until 2024. — 12 days ago

Greywacke

Wild Sauvignon Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Kevin Judd handeling the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc in his own way by natural fermentation on oak.
Pale to straw yellow.
Still fruity (pear and grapefruit) & herbal (asparagus and grass), but with added minerality (a hint of flint), butteryness and some earthyness that makes this SB surpass a regular Marlborough Sauvignon.
Medium to high acidity. Medium to long aftertaste.

Renieri Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Finesse. Maybe too long of a decant at 4 hours. Subtle black fruits, little clove, really mellow and good. Great with risotto and focaccia. 5 more bottles to experiment with. — a year ago
