Place the juniper berries on a cutting board, and crush them with a heavy pot.
If the butcher has not already done so, carve the grain-fed veal kidneys into small 1/2 cm (1/4 inch) slices.
Heat about 60 ml (1/4 cup) butter in one very large skillet or two smaller skillets over high heat. Once the butter has browned, add the kidneys and cook for 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Stir and cook 2 minutes more. Remove from heat, and drain the kidneys in a sieve over a large stainless steel bowl. Keep warm in low oven.
Heat about 45 ml (3 Tbsp.) butter in a very large skillet over medium-high heat. When the butter starts to foam, add the mushrooms, and sauté until nicely browned. Add the white port and bring to boil. Add the veal stock and reduce by half. Add the cornstarch-cream mixture. Cook 3 minutes more. Add the juniper berries, then the kidneys. Heat for 1 minute, and remove from heat. Correct seasoning.
These dry wines are characterised by their intense spice, toast, or exotic fruit aromas. They leave a full-bodied texture on the palate and are well-balanced.
