This evening I’m cooking dinner for a good friend, who expressed an interest in expanding her wine horizons – so I invited her for a meal with some wines to match.
Spotted some figs in my local green grocer, so I think I’ll make some baked figs stuffed with goat’s cheese as a starter, and we’ll open this slightly unusual (I think!) sparkling offering from the Pfalz:
Made by Oliver Zeter from 100% Sauvignon Blanc. I tried three of Zeter’s wines to date, (Grauburgunder, Riesling and SB Fume) and they were all very good to excellent – so hoping this one will not disappoint.
For main, I’m making a Sicilian Butternut Squash stew with couscous, and as my friend usually drinks Pinot Noir – I thought I’d try a Beaujolais Cru on her as an alternative, and see what she thinks:
Not sure yet about dessert – might make a Key Lime Pie – so thinking of opening the Paul Cluver 2014 Late Harvest Riesling I recently got in the M&S discounts. Might finish the Torres Moscatel from Sunday too, if there’s room. It really hit the spot the other day!
