Great Tasting last night

November 20th, 2009

We had a really great tasting in Nuala’s cafe in the historic Hickey’s bakery with Joyce Austin last night. The floods were rising but the wine was flowing as well. We expected some people not to make it, but in the end we had overcapacity. The place was jointed.
The major winners on the night from a wine perspective were The Woolaston Pinot Gris, the Tussock Sauvignon Blanc, the Muddy Water Riesling and as always, the star of the show was Muddy Water Slowhand Pinot Noir. With only 285 cases made, it is a real treat. I can only see its star rising… The other contender for the star of the night was Nuala’s Cafe. It is classic French cafe style ( we will forget T Henry for a moment ) and Nuala, Paddy and Helen laid on some absolutely fantastic food. It really was top end and it complimented the wines wonderfully.

A great night had by all and Joyce played a stormer as usual. If she is coming to a town near you, don’t miss it….
