Querciabella – Batar 2018 75cl Bottle
Querciabella – Batar 2018 75cl Bottle from TheDrinkShop
Peachy, floral and honeyed with hints of fresh grass and mint. Generous, rich and expressive yet focussed and precise. Powerful, concentrated and structured with driving acidity and a firm mineral backbone. This is a masterful balancing act and an extremely special wine.
A young Batr is enhanced by foods served with truffles and creamy sauces, herbs like thyme and tarragon and sauted vegetables. We recommend pairing it with Tagliatelle in a Truffled Cashew Cream Sauce or Vegetable Stir-fry with Garlic and Ginger Ramen Noodles.
As it matures, Batr develops more umami notes, hence will pair beautifully with umami-rich dishes with sauted or roasted mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes and roasted root vegetables like squash, parsnips and turnips. Some great pairings include Miso-tahini Butternut Squash Soup and Penne with Sun-dried Tomato Pesto.
