LDH Sauvignon Blanc 2019

“Fresh cut grass, zingy refreshing acidity, juicy and fresh, hints of citrus blossom and passionfruit.”

Stuart James Halliday, Fifth Term Panellist 2020 Competition

“Bright clean fresh green apple fruit. A delicate bright fresh fruit nose showing hints of citrus and green apple. Lovely balanced acid with a slight gooseberry lift on the finish. Wine balances out well with this dish as brightness comes through.”

Brent Marris, Fourteenth Term Panellist 2020 Competition

Presented by chef Marcell Kustos

LDH Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Ingredients

  • 6 zucchini, thinly sliced (thinnest on the mandolin) and salted (½ zucchini/person)
  • 1 punnet cherry tomatoes, roasted at 180C with salt and olive oil for 20 min
  • ¼ cup blanched hazelnuts, roasted at 180C for 6 min, roughly chopped

Dressing:

  • 6 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 small garlic clove, finely grated, fried
  • ¾ tsp. sugar
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ lemon
  • Salt if needed

Ricotta cream:

  • 250g fresh ricotta (in tube, not the crumbly one you bought for the trial)
  • 50g fresh goats cheese
  • 1 sprig dill, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp salt

Method

  1. Mix the ricotta cream with stick mixer until smooth, set aside.
  2. Press the liquid out of the salted zucchini. Mix with dressing.
  3. Smear ricotta cream on plate, add roasted tomatoes and zucchini on top and finish with hazelnut and a drizzle of flesh olive oil. Note: The pairing is based on the sour-salty interplay of the dish and the crisp acidity in the SB wines. Make sure both salt and acidity of the dish are in check.
