Stonecroft Hawkes Bay Reserve Syrah Red Wine & Dark Truffles 135g
Pairing chocolate and red wine can be a challenge that most are not prepared to face, but it can also be one of the most extraordinary gastronomic experiences of your life. Dark chocolate due to its lower sweetness levels can enhance the fruit flavours of the wine and create a marvellous tension between the tannic finish of a full bodied red and the bitter finish of the chocolate. Whether you’re a full on wine lover or an adventurous foodie this is a pairing you just can’t say no to!
Stonecroft Hawkes Bay Reserve Syrah Red Wine 2013 is a very concentrated, dense Syrah with big fruit flavours of blackberry, blackcurrant and plum. The 2013 vintage was a superb season with good flowering, fruit set and an excellent ripening period.Read more...
After early frosts, spring weather was settled and sunny and summer was long, hot and dry with very low rainfall. These conditions produced fruit with lots of flavour and good ripeness.
Charbonnel & Walker Truffles - a perfect match for fine red wines. Dark Marc de Champagne Truffles are lightly dusted with cocoa with a delicious Champagne truffle centre - mixed with a little rum. Marc de champagne is a clear liquor distilled from the pomace of pressed champagne grapes and is part of the secret ingredient of the delicate scent and unique flavour of Charbonnel & Walker's creamy Marc de Champagne truffles.
If you require large quantities of truffles for an event or gifts please contact us before hand as they can be made to order and take up to three weeks to produce.
