Folding Hill Pinot Noir 2014
Spring is the word, roast Lamb and wonderful long lost green vegetables all over the show. With such a fine meat, a great Pinot Noir is the way to go, and we recommend the incredible Folding Hill Estate, 2014. Harking from the far south of the world in New Zealand’s Central Otago, there is Burgundian class with wonderfully intense fruit and real concentration.
The estate is well on its way to being certified Organic and the winemaking is as meticulous, yet hands off as possible. Hand picked, sorted and even punched down, its hands on throughout the entire process, with as little use of machinery as possible. The result is a sensational bottle for the table.
Chablis Defaix 2015
A timeless classic. Freshness and minerality fill Bernard Defaix’s Chablis 2015 to the rafters, making it the perfect aperitif and a flawless companion to some Asparagus and hollandaise before the main lunch event. Why not get hold of a dozen oysters or so to really kick things off. A stellar vintage and assured concentration mean this is a wine that speaks for itself.
