My goal was to dress up a meal of diner-style open-faced roast turkey breast sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy. That’s easy. Pairing is trickier than it seems because you want to avoid overt fruitiness and neutralize the saltiness of the dish while provding enough body richness to stand up to the full, earthy flavors. Fair roll of the dice, here.
- Aroma: deep golden hay
- Nose: beeswax, Bosc pear, lemon, delicate apricot
- Taste: muted apricot and lemon pulp coated with (not-sweet) honey essence
- Mouthfeel: viscous with a bit of mineral prickle cutting through a delicate waxiness
