So I did try the match, Hip. Unfortunately..... they were the worst nectarines we've had all season. Much too hard and underripe. However, the occasional sweet-ish bite DID indeed expose a nice tropical sweetness in the sauv. blanc, and the other unripe bites brought forward a more stony minerality resembling a more old-world style wine. The bottle was called "Pomelo", and was pretty good at 9 bucks. I think Wine Spectator just gave it 88-points, which is respectable at that price point. The goat cheese was great with this, btw.
Sweet review....some pun intended. Im a red wine fan but sometimes white is very refreshing. Its been a long time since Ive had a good chenin blanc.
What sets him apart is that he’s big, and he can skate, and he can protect the puck from anyone. If you’re trying to get it and he doesn’t want you to get, you’re not going to. -Justin Williams on Kopitar
