Sauvignon Blanc, dry, 2012
Sauvignon Blancs convince with their harmoniously integrated acidity and pleasant fullness of flavor, which is refreshing and fruity-fragrant at the same time.
Preheat the oven to 200°C/390°F. Halve eggplants lengthwise, score flesh crosswise and drizzle some olive oil on top. Roast for approx. 30 – 40 min. until soft. Then leave to cool.
