After @strawpig’s post about miso butter last weekend, I had to give it a go, so cooked cod with miso butter, wilted radicchio, and peas and broad beans. I can confirm that miso butter is dangerously tasty - thanks Patrick! We drank Kientzler Muhlforst Riesling, 2018.
This is the first vintage made of this wine, and we bought it last summer. It has 2018’s typical ripe fruit, but it’s still tasting young and lean - I suspect both from the young vines and the young vintage. Wines from the Muhlforst vineyard are always marked by good acidity and minerality, and that’s all there - it’s not lean in a bad way, but I anticipate that like all adolescents, it will fill out with time. Its citrus and salinity matched the food well.
We have an Aktar Tandoori BBQ Box in the fridge ready to eat with friends tomorrow - really looking forward to that. Happy Weekend!
