Wine Of The Day

Thursday, 4 October 2007

Our Wine Of The Day is chosen to compliment our dish of today and your palate!

This is a delicious white wine, crisp and refreshing that will compliment both of Richard's Dishes the Mushroom Charlotte with Cashel Blue & Fish Pie Feast! However we have decided to taste it with the Mushroom Charlotte because its vibrant fresh flavours and long finish will enhance the flavours of the mushrooms and the Cashel Blue Cheese.  A delectable match.

Grape: Chardonnay
Region: Burgundy
Vintage: 2005

Tesco Chablis has vibrant apricot flavours and a fresh long finish. This Chablis is a great match with lobster.

The grapes are carefully pressed and vinified at cool temperatures in modern stainless steel tanks to preserve fresh and delicate citrus fruit aromas and flavours associated with Chablis.

Chablis covers a little less than 5.000 acres of chalk-based vineyards situated around the little town of Chablis situated south-east in the Yonne department.
