On Thursday 26th March, The Bell Inn hosted a Wine Tasting Evening featuring Australian wines from the Katnook Estate. The evening consisted of a 3 course meal, with wines to accompany each course. The evening was led by a representative from Katnook Estate Wines who spoke before the meal, enlightening guests about the Katnook Estate and wine production, and again before each course to introduce the wines and explain a bit about them. He was then on hand to answer any questions throughout the evening. Assisting with the proceedings was a representative from Berkmann Wine Cellars, one of the UK’s leading independent wholesalers.
The Bell’s very own Head Chef compiled the 3 course menu, taking into account the wines and creating dishes to bring out the best in each. The meal started with an Aperitif of White Bait with Lemon Mayonnaise paired with the Deakin Estate Brut Chardonnay and the Pinot Noir Sparkling. This was followed by a starter of Fillet of Pollock, Lemon & Caper Dressing – accompanied by the Katnook Estate Sauvignon Blanc. Next up was the Rump of Lamb, Colcannon Potato, Spring Greens and Minted Jus which was paired with the Founders Block Cabernet Sauvignon. And last of all, a dessert of Dark Chocolate & Cherry Pave, which was accompanied by Founders Block Shiraz.
