Roquefort & a Sauternes, but I cannot remember for the life of me who the producer or what year it was... Explosion of flavours though. But thats a bit of a cop-out i guess.

Best that I paired myself would have been a Marc Bredif '08 Vouvray with a simple chicken breast and fruit salsa.

Thanks Bob. Follow up question, would a Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett (and I might also have one Blue Slate Kabinett left) work well?

Or maybe John Duval Plexus (marsanne, rousanne, viognier - hence CduR style) work for the tasting platter?

Ok, but I'll keep an eye out for the Chateau Simone. Thanks :)

Interesting, I'll have to rustle up a bottle from somewhere. But, would that work in this case, I mean, even with the strong gorgonzola? My girlfriend uses gorgonzola picante, as opposed to gorgonzola dolce which has a milder flavour. Wouldn't the nuances of the white wines be somewhat lost?

More wine pairing questions

I'm starting to get more into pairing wine, making sure that the wine really does enhance the flavours of the food & vice versa. But, when I pick out wines I seem to get very hit & miss results with my own 'instincts' on pairing. So could you wonderful people help with a couple dishes that I often whip up at home? :)

My girlfriend's signature dish, which I love, is a Gorgonzola & Porcini Mushroom Risotto. What would be the perfect wine? I tried this with a Cab Sauv & that seemed to work quite nicely, but it was a little overpowering... Maybe a Sangiovese?

Also, what would work well with a really simple grazing platter? (prosciutto, olivers, tzatziki, artichoke dip, maybe a little chorizo or arancini)

TIA :)

Yeah, I think you and Brad are right. I'll leave the Sauternes to lie down a bit longer. Any other suggestions for the Prum?

Its the Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett '07. That sounds like a nice little appetizer, a selection of cured meats. Thanks!

Hey guys,

I'm quite new to Chowhound but a long-term win and food lover. Could you help me with some nice recipes/dish ideas for a few wines I'm opening at a dinner party next week. The wines are:

2005 Ben Glaetzer Amon-Ra Shiraz (Barossa Valley, Aust)

2006 Isole e Olena Cepparello (Tuscany, Italy)

2007 Joh. Jos. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling (Mosel, Germany)

2005 Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes (Bordeaux, France)

I was thinking a nice meaty dish to pair with the Cepparello and Amon-ra, maybe ossobucco? Any more suggestions? Especially for the Mosel?
