Unusual Food And Wine Pairings To Indulge In

Wine and food pairing means so much more than just pairing wine with cheese. This is why we have chosen the perfect summer pairing to start the season.


Today we are pairing our 2012 vintage Chardonnay with a decadent smoked salmon and prawn starter. The richness of the salmon and the meatiness of the prawns truly brings out the freshness and complexity of our classic barrel fermented Chardonnay. Our rare Chardonnay offers a clean minerality that follows through to the palate and offers a creamy and textured finish.

Tasting notes to look out for: This classic barrel fermented Chardonnay offers complex citrus, stone fruit and elderflower aromatics overlain with oak-derived spice and leesy nuances, that follow through to the palate offering a creamy, textured finish.

Smoked salmon salad with Prawns and horseradish vinaigrette.

Recipe:

Ingredients:

tbsp crème fraîche

1 tsp horseradish sauce

4 slices smoked salmon

10 large cooked prawns peeled but tails left on

For the salad:

The juice of 1 lime

1 tsp clear honey

½ tsp finely grated fresh root ginger

2 tbsp light olive oil

2 handfuls small leaf salad

Mix the crème fraîche with the horseradish and a little salt and pepper. For the dressing, whisk the lime juice and zest with the honey, ginger and seasoning, then whisk in the oil. Lay the smoked salmon and prawns on to the plates, then top with a dollop of the horseradish cream. Toss the salad in most of the dressing and pile on top. Drizzle the remaining dressing around the plate and serve.

The perfect starter to enjoy with friends over the summer season. Enjoy!
