I know the week has just started, but nevertheless it’s time to review a new wine. I have already told you that I like to try out the not-so-famous countries and regions, and this wine is no exception. Matua is from Marlborough in New Zealand. Yep, I’ve had good experiences with wines from both Australia and New Zealand before, so I have no trouble trying out a new one.
It is not very often I buy and taste wine from USA. Mostly, it is Italy, France and Germany. It is a shame that the other countries do not get more attention. There are a lot of good wine makers out there, but since they are not from well-known wine territory, we tend to avoid them. Do not be afraid of trying out something new!
Let me first tell you something. This is one of the very few wines I really find it difficult to find matching food to. Of course you CAN drink it to almost everything, but it just doesn’t give the wine the attention it deserves. Chablis is famous, and especially for one thing. They are all made of chardonnay, and the most famous
fact about them is how incredibly dry they are.
Sushi is more popular than ever. It can be quite challenging to find a suitable wine for a sushi meal. The reason for this is the huge amount of different flavors in sushi. You have to take sweet, salty and acids into consideration. Wheh drinking wine with food, we want it to enhance the flavors in the food, and let the food enhance the wine. This is not easy with sushi, but I think this wine does the trick!
Det er høytid for lam, og da trenger man en god vin som kan lede deg gjennom et mektig lammemåltid. Denne gangen går turen til Italia, nærmere bestemt Piemonte.
