Our Two Tails Pinot Gris, 2014 was recently awarded a Blue Gold Award at the Sydney International Wine Competition 2015.
It was one of only fifteen per cent of entries that advanced to being tasted with food and judged alongside appropriate food. As a JUDGED with FOOD Award winner it was not just judged for technical correctness, but judged again for its harmony and balance, the key to its ability to complement appropriate food dishes.
Sarah and I think that the best way to enjoy the wines we make at Two Tails and Fairbourne Estate is to make them part of your perfect dining experience, it’s certainly the way we enjoy them, and as you know I’m a bit of a demon in the kitchen….. lucky Sarah!
This year we wanted to make it easier for you to make the decisions around your festive celebrations, so we’ve popped together a Two Tails inspired menu… Bon Apetit!
paired with Two Tails Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
Salmon and seafood are natural accompaniments for New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and our Two Tails Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is no exception.
I found this great Jamie Oliver recipe online for Super-quick salmon gravadlax with horseradish sauce & beautiful beets, TAKE A LOOK.
The main event…
Roast leg of lamb with garlic and rosemary
paired with Two Tails Marlborough Pinot Noir
As an alternative to turkey, consider a delicious roast lamb recipe for your Christmas table centre piece. New Zealand Lamb like our country’s wine is famous the world over and it’s great to celebrate with the things we do really well! VIEW THE RECIPE.
Hit the sweet spot…
paired with Two Tails Marlborough Pinot Gris
Traditionally you might choose a sweet sticky dessert wine to partner your pud…. However, don’t turn your back on an exceedingly good Pinot Gris which can partner fruit pies and tarts well. Summer is the perfect time for fresh cherries here in New Zealand, I’ve chosen a cherry clafoutis, a lighter option than a pie or tart, where the pastry may be a bit heavy after a roast dinner.
