Includes one each of the following paired with recipes from Mourne Fish Box Website
Sepp Moser Gruner Veltliner Von den Terrassen (Kremstal, Austria)
A recipe packed with tropical notes around the mango and lime with spicy elements in the jerk seasoning and mustard. Sepp Moser's Gruner Veltliner Von den Terrassen from the Kremstal region of Austria will pair beautifully. Gruner Veltliner as a variety typically has a white pepper note on the finish and this version is quite richly textured and fuller bodied with ripe stone fruit flavours and a delicious citrus and mineral finish.
Iona Elgin Sauvignon Blanc (Elgin, Sauvignon Blanc)
A simple recipe which highlights all that is good about Sea Bass. To match with this and the lemon/caper dressing you need something which has lots of fresh citrus flavours with a mineral edge. A classic match would be a Sancerre or Pouilly Fume, but I’ve selected a New World equivalent from South Africa, Iona Sauvignon Blanc from the cool climate region of Elgin which has all those lovely fresh lemon notes and lean minerality to really showcase this dish.
Wakefield Clare Valley Riesling (Clare Valley, Australia)
The texture and flavour suits the Asian flavours in this dish particularly well. The Asian spicing and lime salsa in this dish match particularly well with a Riesling from Australia’s Clare Valley, one of the country’s leading Riesling centres. Expect powerful lime cordial flavours and precise acidity which stand up particularly well to spicing and strong flavours such as coriander from the classic Wakefield Riesling.
Stella Bella Margaret River Chardonnay (Margaret River, Australia)
The buttery leeks and sweet Scallops require a white wine with body and weight to stand up to flavours with a sweeter fruit profile (don’t confuse this for sugar though) so something like a cooler climate new world Chardonnay with some oak influence should pair very well. The Stella Bella Margaret River Australian Chardonnay with its ripe pineapple, peach and subtle hazelnut flavours from French oak influence should be a perfect match. Margaret River is one of the World’s leading Chardonnay regions with a perfect climate for producing top quality food friendly wines.
Eric Louis Pouilly Fume (Loire Valley, France)
The powerful flavour in this dish is the smoked Mackerel without a doubt and the smoking element is a good place to start when trying to match a wine. A renowned wine which could stand up to this flavour would be a Loire Valley Pouilly Fume. It’s made using Sauvignon Blanc and is grown on unique soils which impart a distinctive smoky flavour and intense minerality. A great example of the style which would pair particularly well is the Eric Louis Pouilly Fume. Flinty, smoky minerality with citrus fruits and roundness to the finish. A great wine from a great producer.
Cave de Turckheim Sables et Galets Pinot Gris (Alsace, France)
These fish cakes are delicious and have a spicy tropical edge to them so require something with a bit of texture and big flavours. Ideal for this is a good quality Alsace Pinot Gris such as the Cave de Turckheim Sables et Galets with its spicy notes, rich stone fruit flavours and full bodied texture. This is an often over looked style from the same variety which produces the ubiquitous Pinot Grigio, the difference being that the ‘Grigio’ is lighter in body and flavour than the ‘Gris’ and will suit less full flavoured dishes.
