A nice selection of post-xmas wines to start the year off nicely.  I chose some pretty full-on recipes to give the wines a real flavour-match test.  Interesting results:

1)Colchagua Estate, ( Sauvignon Blanc), Vina Sutil,  Curico Valley, Chile, 2011 MYR44

2) Guest White Wine, ( Private Bin Riesling), Villa Maria, Marlborough, New Zealand, 2011
