"We’re making the switch to screw caps for our 2020 Rosé and Riesling. The growing popularity of cork-alternative closures has been a hot topic in recent years but we find the benefits will far outweigh the costs."
- Metal wine screw caps solve the “corked bottle” syndrome that ruins thousands of bottlings each year. A batch of bad corks can have an especially severe financial impact on wineries that only produce 10,000 cases or less per year.
- They are easier to open and close and make enjoying the wine more convenient.]
- They are less expensive for wineries and, ultimately, you.
Since the 2020 was more delicate, I wanted a dish that was still subtly spiced but didn't overpower the mouthfeel with crisped panko crumbs. I settled on a Thai-Inspired Chicken Satay Skewers with Peanut Sauce.
This was such a fun exploration of Yakima Valley's Sin Banderas' Rhône Rosés paired with dishes with Asian Flair. The 2019 Rosés stood up to a Japanese-spiced fried chicken and Fijian ceviche beautifully while the more delicate 2020 was a nice flavor foil to my Thai-inspired chicken satay and yellow curry. I can't wait to share my pairings for Sin Banderas' 2017 Rhône Red. Stay tuned...
