Jules Taylor Marlborough Grüner Veltliner 2021 $23
Paired with: Leek Risotto with Peas and Mint in dish Magazine Issue 99
Peas, mint and leeks just scream out for something rich yet herbaceous, so I’m gunning for the Jules Taylor Marlborough Grüner Veltliner 2021 ($23). Its face-punch of florals, avalanche of apple, sackloads of citrus, layers of lemongrass and its tsunami of salinity make it powerfully perfect with the parmesan creaminess of this risotto.

It’s a crunchy-crisp yet generously proportioned grüner and shows clever handling of intensely pure fruit.
