wine + herb 2011

May 22, 2011 § 1 Comment

Saturday, a penetratingly sunny day. Perfect for biking: Taylor Creek > Brick Works > Mount Pleasant Cemetery > Nicole MacNicol Parkette > Sunnybrook > Taylor Creek. Dinner with my parents. dad made perfectly textured fish fillet

Sunday, S playing soccer. Jotting down memories from the wine + herb weekend. I’m a red wine person, because red wine is clearly more keen. But I do have a soft spot for the acidity of Riesling and the aroma of Gewurz.

Inniskillin Wines
2009 Riesling
Inniskillin Tom Yum Soup Ontario Edamame Enoki Mushroom Lemongrass
best wine + soup pairing ever

Marynissen Estates Winery
2007 Cabernet Merlot
Ploughmans Lunch
not usually a salami person but bison salami + Merlot is wow

Hillebrand Winery
2009 Artist Series Gewürztraminer
Spring Lamb Sausage with Organic Mint Yoghurt
can’t say I understand this pairing of wine and food, but the pairing of lamb and mint is amazing

The Ice House
