Piemonte Wine Dinner at Cipriani
A Wine Dinner Worth All the Wait Like A Fine Barolo...
28 April, 2022
經歷一波三折的Cipriani 皮埃蒙特 Wine Dinner 終於在昨晚成功舉辦, 非常感謝一眾酒友出席支持, 一同享受精心配搭的皮埃蒙特酒款及Cipriani精湛的菜式! 昨晚最令到酒友眼前一亮的, 就當然是皮埃蒙特當地人最常飲用的餐酒 Dolcetto! 在意大利文中解作「小甜蜜」的Dolcetto, 在酒杯中散發出花香, 成熟的黑果及紅果果香, 但入口時單寧明顯及帶出獨有的苦澀感, 令人一杯接一杯暢飲之餘, 更非常適合配搭皮埃蒙特傳統料理 Vitello tonnato!
而昨晚Wine Dinner主角就當然少不了皮埃蒙特的酒王Barolo與酒后Barbaresco - 不少酒友盛讚La Ganghija酒莊的Barbaresco 2017 酒體柔中帶剛, Nebbiolo的豐富花果芳香及木桶帶出的雲呢拿香氣十分平衡; 而Virna Borgogno酒莊的Barolo di Barolo 2014 則酒香濃烈奔放, 展現極好的陳年魅力!
Our long-waited Cipriani Piemonte Wine Dinner was finally finished last night, thanks to all wine-lovers joining us to enjoy the well-paired Piemontese wines and excellent cuisine at Cipriani! The most charming wine goes to the well-appreciated Dolcetto, the most common food-pairing wine in Piedmont! 'Little sweet one' in Italian, it expresses floral fragance, ripe black and red fruit, along with expressive tannin and signature bitterness, making it paired amazingly with Piedmont's traditional cuisine Vitello tonnato!
The main characters of last night went to 'King of Wines' and 'Queen of Wines' - Barolo and Barbaresco! Many guests praised La Ganghija Barbaresco 2017 for its well-balanced vanila oaky note and Nebbiolo's rich floral and fruity scents, elegant yet powerful! Virna Borgogno Barolo di Barolo 2014 is still vibrant and fresh, showing great aging potential!
5 Wines for 5 Samurai Teppanyaki Lunch
Perfect Match, Perfect Meal
12 February 2022
日式鐵板燒除了可以配搭清酒之外, 葡萄酒亦十分適合! VVA為五武士鐵板燒午餐中剛好挑選了五款葡萄酒! 來自英國東南部West Sussex的Stopham酒莊, 作為餐前酒的英國傳統法氣泡酒震驚全場, 配搭北海道真鱈魚的Pinot Gris白酒驚艷亮麗! 無論薄或厚燒的鐵板牛都跟意大利薩丁島酒莊Tenute Olbios的Colli del Limbara Rosso "Nessuno"絕佩, 並帶出紅酒濃郁紅果及黑果果香, 亦有森林般的清新木香; 師傅在炒飯的時候，大家比鄰座活活的鮑魚吸引，決定「加餸」並即場選了意大利氣泡酒Andreola Verv Prosecco, 清新的酸度能帶出鮑魚的鮮味! 最後意大利東南部的Puglia, 來自酒莊I Pàstini的Minutolo甜酒有着獨特礦物氣息及均衡的花香, 非常適合配搭甜度十足的日本水果!
Want something new for pairing with Teppanyaki? Our Teppanyaki Lunch at 5 Samurai went perfectly with 5 wines! For aperitivo and Madara fish, English Sparkling and Pinot Gris from the winery Stopham in West Sussex showed the stunning potential of English wines! To pair with Teppanyaki beef, Tenute Olbios Colli del Limbara Rosso "Nessuno" from Sardinia is perfect, thanks to its expressive aromas of black and red fruits, so as woods and forest! As the Teppanyaki Master was cooking our fried rice, we were tempted to try the live abalone served to the next table! We chose Andreola Verv prosecco, a lively and vital sparkling! Our Teppanyaki wine lunch sweetly ends with a Minutolo Passito from I Pàstini winery in Puglia, showing exceptional minerality and floral aromas and going well with sweet and fresh Japanese fruit!
CHUECA - Spanish Wine Dinner
A Spanish Night-out in Central
7 December 2021
It was full of Spanish vibes last night at CHUECA! VVA Team hosted a semi-outdoor wine dinner at the newly-opened CHUECA in Central, enjoying various Tapas and a wide selection of Spanish wines with our guests under a relaxing atmosphere! A Cava is surely a must for kicking start our Spanish night-out, and to pair with the Tapas, an aromatic white wine of tropical fruits aromas and a medium-bodied old vine red wine from Montsant Mountain will be the perfect choices! Moving onto main course, Rib Eyes and Lobster Rice were mouth-watering and savoury, and what can pair better with 2 excellent red wines of decent acidity and round tannin, along with aromas of spices, walnuts and ripe fruits, despite the difference in grape varieties and blendings! Lastly, a fortified sweet red wine of Garnacha and a Vermut to pair with the amazing-looking cheesecake and flan!
VVA is honoured to have Mr Jürgen Wagner, winemaker and export manager of Celler de Capçanes to tell our guests more about each wine and the process behind making Kosher wines!
