I needed to make a wine that my wife likes, and she enjoys ones that have what she calls “drama”. At the same time I have grown tired of aggressive, green Sauvignon blanc and therefore tried to steer a middle course. The “La Barry” has delicate elderflower fruit with underlying grassier tones, but is unthreatening enough to keep coming back for another glass. Long lasting and substantial on the palate, it is not just a pool wine but pairs well with food. As it ages mineral and flinty flavours come to the fore, so don’t drink all of it too young!
Perfect as aperitif, or match with delicate dishes like fresh seafood salads, oysters and even tuna tartare with a very subtle wasabi sauce.
