July 2018 HOUSE WINE PAIRINGS
$85 PER GUEST
MV Delamotte Champagne, Brut, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Cóte des Blancs, France
Pairing Notes: We are thrilled to begin the evening with bubbles from one of our favorite houses. This wine is predominantly Grand Cru Chardonnay. Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are added to finish the personality of the wine. The finish is elegant and perfectly balanced with notes of white flesh fruit, pear, and ginger.
2016 Jordanov Rkaciteli, Tikves, Macedonia, Greece
Pairing Notes: For your Hawaiian Kaku and Summer Melon Coulis, we present this fun, unique, and delicious varietal. Good enough to enjoy on its own, yet even more complex when the flavors of melon and peach come alongside the Poke and Melons. With just the right amount of acidity, this is a sure-fire way to kick off your evening.
2013 Gerard Seguin Pinot Noir, ‘La Place’, Fixin, France
Pairing Notes: This glass is sure to be a crowd pleaser! The wine is loaded with floral notes of violets and fruit notes of cassis and Morello cherries. There are undertones of forest floor that pair well with the Roasted Huitlacoche and Summer Truffles. This wine comes from the lesser known region of Fixin and is bound to turn you into a believer of Burgundian Pinot Noir.
2015 Villa Russiz Pinot Bianco, Colli, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy
Pairing Notes: To match the sweetness of that beautiful Pan Roasted Scallop, we pour you this stunning wine. A delicate bouquet of white jasmine evolves to apples and almonds, paying homage to the bed of cucumbers, avocado, and citrus. This estate began as a story of love between Elvine Ritter de Zahoney and Theodore de la Tour, in 1868! We hope you love the wine too.
2014 Yangarra Shiraz, McLaren Vale, South Australia
Pairing Notes: With the Peppered Beef Tenderloin, we wanted to present a wine that was full-bodied and rich with flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, and a hint of pepper. As such, we found this magnificent wine. Those stunning aromas and flavors complement the tenderloin and Piperade of Local Peppers incredibly well. Enjoy every mouth-watering bite and sip.
2004 Warre’s Late Bottled Vintage Port, Portugal
Pairing Notes: To bring the evening to its pinnacle, we bring you notes of red cherries and floral aromas of elderflowers. The finish is long and the wine has been bottle-aged just long enough for the tannins to soften. It combines well with the White Chocolate Panna Cotta and Strawberry Ginger Meringue.
