I was in heaven at the @crmresorts@cilantro17thave Spring Dinner Series tonight! @winointhewest discovered she actually likes dessert wine (hard not to love the 2003 @chateausuduiraut Sauternes with a deep bowl of tiramisu) and I am sorry/not sorry to learn that I love tender, sweet suckling pig. They served it over a panzanella (read: bread!) salad, so what's not to like??
Sauternes - 'Fascinante'
Elaborado com as uvas sémiollon, Sauvignon Blanc e muscadelle, mas o que o torna peculiar é sua "podridão nobre". Os Sauternes tem seus aromas, sabores e coloração marcante, graças a um fungo chamado Botrytis cinerea, que passifica as uvas enquanto ainda estão no pé. Esse fenômeno ocorre naturalmente em poucas regiões do mundo e a região de Sauternes é uma delas.

Sometimes only the classics will do. Although I’m a sucker for a new opening some of my favourite restaurants have been here for years and years. This was my first trip to @sweetingslondon which was first established in 1830 no less!!! The skate wing with black butter sauce was standout and who doesn’t love an old school prawn cocktail! Magical service and Guinness in silver tankards, there’s no wonder it’s still alive and kicking in this tricky environment! 🐟 🦐

I’ve never been a fan of dessert wines but lately Sauternes has been calling my name. Beautiful liquid gold coloring in the glass. Varietally correct nose of white flowers, apricots, pears, and delicious honey. Well balanced, with high acidity and only medium sweetness. I typically find these sweet wines to be way too candied and cloying for my tastes but I’ve been proven wrong before and I’m usually happy when I am. Lemon and orange peel, butterscotch, grapefruit marmalade, baked apples, and toffee on the palate. The finish is shorter than I would like but leaves you with a nice little vanilla exit. #wine#sauternes#bordeaux#wineporn#lastbottle
