Featured Wines:

Domaine Bousquet Organic Brut NV – Aromas of citrus, apple and tropical fruits. Tastes of green apple flavour and aroma, tropical and delicate minerality. Made from organic grapes.

Cono Sur Vineyards & Winery Single Vineyard Chardonnay 2018 – Aromas of citrus, grapefruit, lime, pineapples and white flowers. Smooth, flavourful taste of acidity, mineral and saline hints. 20% in French barrels for 5 months leads to a less oaky finish.

Viña Santa Ema Amplus Carmenére ONE 2017 – Aromas of sour cherries, black pepper and chocolate. Bright tasting, well bodied and concentration with a fruity ending linger.

Bodegas Trivento Golden Reserve Malbec 2016 – Aromas of red fruit, plum and cherry. Velvety smooth tastes with a long and an oak finish. French oak barrels for 12 months. 94 points, James Suckling.

Bodega Argento Cabernet Franc Reserva 2016 – Aromas of cherry, raspberry, currant leaves and fruits. Tastes of herbs and cassis for spicy notes. Tastes of sweet tannins, spiciness, rich and full-bodied with a long finish. Argento Reserva is a limited selection of fuller-bodied wines with a greater concentration of fruit and complexity. The grapes used to make these wines come from the Argento’s oldest vineyards in Mendoza.

Achaval-Ferrer Mendoza Malbec 2017 – Aromas are fresh and floral, featuring blackberry, raspberry and violets. Taste is dense, thick with a noticeable mineral frame. It is acidic with silky tannins and a long finish.

 

My favourite was the bright crimson Gran Reserva Carmenere from Santa Ema.

What is Fritillaria Bulb?

Fritillaria is a type of perennial, bulbous flowering plants belonging to the lily family. It is found in temperate regions in the Northern hemisphere. There are many species of Fritillaria that are toxic. Yellow Himalayan fritillary (Fritillaria cirrhosa) is commonly used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat respiratory conditions. Fritillaria has a bitter, sweet, and slightly cold nature.

 

Fritillaria are used in TCM to treat respiratory conditions connected to the lungs.

  • Asthma
  • Bronchitis
  • Cough
  • Hypertension
  • Pneumonia
  • Swelling
  • Tuberculosis

 

Many of the medicinal applications of fritillaria are connected to the lungs. In traditional Chinese medicine, Fritillaria is known for its ability to eliminate and decrease the production of phlegm and mucus by cooling and moistening the lungs, as well as reducing inflammation. Fritillaria also has potent antitussive properties providing relief from coughs.

How to select and buy Fritillaria Bulb 如何選擇和購買靓川贝 DOUBLE-STEAMED #SNOWPEAR WITH #FRITILLARIA BULB NOMSS.COM FOOD RECIPE BLOG #川貝燉雪梨

How To Select and Buy Fritillaria Bulb 如何選擇和購買靓川贝

I suggest buying whole grain when selecting and buying Fritillaria compared to purchasing the powder form. It is easier to distinguish whether it is genuine. The original Fritillaria Bulb typically is spherical shaped and has a diameter of 2mm. The shape of the Chuanbei is structure with a large flap hugging a smaller flap. If you look closely, the middle it has the shape of a crescent moon.

Pre-polished Fritillaria Bulb original color is light brown. Most market Fritillaria is treated and bleached to be pearly white. Coffee brownish yellow colored Fritillaria Bulb has become harder to buy, so it is very important to soak it in water to remove impurities before consuming. Also Pingbei 平貝 is cheaper than Chuanbei 川貝.
