Our first course was a Pea mousse with a mint and yogurt granita served with beer onions and radish. It was served in a large wide bowl and the chilled yogurt granita against the rest of the flavours was tantalising for the taste buds. This course was paired with a 2009 Nyetimber Classic Cuvée, which I preferred to the first one we tried, although they were both really lovely.
Our second course was a Poached halibut with courgette, lemon verbena, which gave it a really lovely zesty taste, and dulse, paired with a 2010 Nyetimber Blanc de Blancs, which was incredible, and possibly my favourite from the evening.
A roasted pork jowl with fennel, pickled rhurbarb and pollen was a real treat for our third course, and the flavour combinations married really well. Paired with a 1998 Nyetimber Blanc de Blancs we felt really spoilt!
On to desserts, and as a nod to the season, we had English strawberries with pannacotta and shiso, presented beautifully and paired with a very fitting MV Nyetimber.
甜食没有结束,Alyn的标记ture Walnut Whip was enjoyed by the table, served with a glass of Nyetimber Demi-Sec to accompany it. This was incredible and I can see exactly why the Walnut Whip is such a renowned dessert! It is moreish!
During the evening we had the pleasure of the company of Nyetimber’s brand ambassador, who told us about each wine and why it was picked for each dish, as well as more about Nyetimber’s history, their processes and journey to become one of the most well known of the English winemakers.
