To kick things off, what better way to welcome you to our humble abode than with something pink and fabulous? Putting a little sparkle into your morning is this 100% Pinot Noir rosé bubbly from Undurraga in Valle de Leyda, one of Chile's most prestigious wineries. The ideal apéritif, it offers abundant notes of fresh red berries combined with subtle floral hints of rose.
Undurraga 'TH' Chardonnay, Chile
Undurraga are coming in strong again with their 'Terroir Hunter' Chardonnay from Valle de Limarí. Fresh aromas of chamomile flowers, lemon, melon and pear are complemented by touches of toasted hazelnut. Smooth and creamy on the palate, delicate notes of oak spice are exquisitely balanced by coastal freshness through to an elegant finish. A rich, complex wine to match the delightful food!
Red meat and red wine – a match made in heaven when done right! This spicy, punchy and moreish red has attractive floral aromas, fruit compote and vanilla and balsamic notes in the background, and is full-flavoured and juicy; just like these sliders! Hailing from the region of Jumilla, this 100% Monastrell has the balanced freshness on the palate to lift the ripe fruit through to a persistent finish.
Into the realm of sweetness we delve, and we're all in: a sweet wine for a dessert course, let's do this properly! This luscious, Sauternes-style noble rot wine from New South Wales is intense and honeyed, with layered aromas of orange rind and apricot, subtle balancing acidity and delicious toasted notes, making it perfect both to cut through and complement the decadent, rich, chocolatey gooeyness of this dessert. Opulence meets opulence!
