Sarah Mayo of thelocalnose.com flanking a host of wines at the ‘Great Reds from Great Terroirs’ tasting organised by the Austrian Wine Board. We tasted a perfumed Sassicaia 1982, a floral-mint-soy nuanced Costa Russi 1998 from Gaja; a delightfully aromatic, dry, herbal wine with minerals called Spitzerberg Blaufrankisch 2006 from Muhr van de Niepoort; a dense, layered Pichon-Baron 2003 with red pepper and soy marmite overtones; a Pinot Noir reserve 2004 from Markowitsch with lashings of forest fruit with sage, coriander and soft silky tannins and more. Twenty-two memorable wines in all.

I had to go away and eat around the world – and finally I began to truly appreciate why I craved for wantan/wuntun noodle soup. Imagine, noodles at the perfectly al dente state – firm yet never hard or starchy soft; soup as exquisite as consomme; slivers of pork as juicy and tasty as asado de Puerco (yes the piquant chilli flavours are somewhat similar). HK style, Singapore style, KL style – the weekly won ton noodles (preferably dry) brings on a contented smile.
