Rocca Pinot Grigio delle Venezia DOC 2019
The simplicity of this dry Italian white wine marries well with the subtle flavours of our salt crust baked spatchcock, while the touch of bitterness at the end cuts through the accompanying rich barley pilaf just as well. In fact it’s a very pleasant wine to sip before, during or after any meal.
Enrico Serafino Brachetto d’Acqui DOCG Non-vintage The baked strawberries served with our chocolate soufflé make this lightly sparkling red dessert wine from Piedmont a perfect match. It’s sweet without being cloying and has a subtle hint of strawberry as well as good acid to balance the chocolate and cut through the richness.
Cà Maiol Sebastian Vino Spumante Brut Non-vintage
Whether you’re at a picnic in the park, a barbecue in the garden or dinner around the table, it’s always great to start with a glass of bubbles. One of our favourites is the dry spumante Sebastian from Cà Maiol, which works beautifully with the olive oil and Mediterranean seasonings in our baked capsicum entrée.
Edoardo Patrone Testa Rüsa Vino Rosato 2018
Picnics and rosé go hand in hand and the dry, full-bodied vino rosato from Edoardo Patrone in the Piemonte Alps is a great match for Janni’s bacon & egg pie. At 13.5% it’s no lightweight, and the testa rüsa name is dialect for red head … all of which might remind us of someone that we know.
White Fences Sauvignon Blanc 2019
We’re including a bottle of the fruity White Fences sauvignon blanc from Mudgee for you to use in the poached saffron pears (menu 4’s suggested dessert) … and so you can enjoy the rest of the bottle with them.
Mezzo e Mezzo Cocktail Mix (120ml)
Mezzo e Mezzo, a classic cocktail from the 1920s, is back in vogue in Europe and with good reason. Try this bitter blend of Nardini red vermouth and rhubarb-based rabarbaro liqueur (amaro) on ice, with some soda and a lemon twist.
