Wood with wine is like make-up with women. In both cases it’s there only to support and to complement, not to hide. Hiding a good wine behind wood is like a beautiful woman hiding behind make-up. It’s a total waste! I was reminded again what an essential yet delicate part wood can play on wine after a wonderful presentation of three Kloovenburg wines (two vintages of each) at Burrata in The Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock. The wines, all white, were paired with pizza, and it worked beautifully.
