Light meat, but also tuna or swordfish; these were the first things that came to mind. But ultimately we decided on veal braised in whey. Fennel, galangal and ginger give the dish an Asian accent. The sauce comes from the fleshy matsutake mushrooms, which harmonise perfectly with the floral notes of the wine,” Anderson was quite enthusiastic. ‘We were particularly impressed with the bouquet of the wine. What aromas! In combination with the aromatic complexity of the mushrooms, its fragrances achieve a truly memorable marriage.
