WSET Level 3
Clare Valley dry Riesling and coconut shrimp yellow curry.
The bottle that got me into wine was a 2015 Paso Robles Grenache-Mourvèdre from the Willow Creek District AVA. It was both powerful and lively. Dense fruit with bright acidity. It exposed me to the balance that could be achieved in wine.
"Real wines come from a real place and they're idiosyncratic and some of them are flawed, but they have real personality and I think they speak to real wine lovers in a deeper way than these confected monstrosities."
