Derbyshire Life Luncheon at The Red Lion

Events food sauvignon blanc wine

As wine suppliers to The Red Lion at Stone Edge, Chesterfield we were pleased to attend the Derbyshire Life luncheon hosted there in December 2007. Food and Wine editor Amber Locke wrote:

“Sustainable-farmed baked Welsh Turbot was served as the main course, topped with Menai Strait Oysters and served a foamy sabayon. The fish was cooked to perfection; juicy and meaty and with a refined flavour and the delicate, slightly salty oysters and elegant sabayon adding an even more luxurious touch to this stunning dish”

“To accompany this a tropical fruit-flavoured and minerally New Zealand Highfield Sauvignon Blanc was served. As this is one of my favourite wines this course was an all-round winner for me and one of the most enjoyable dishes and successful food and wine pairings I have experienced all year”

“Dessert was served as a trio of puddings: a coffee creme brulee, a cube of sticky toffee pudding and a slim wedge of lemon tart. All provided different degrees of sweetness and a contrast of smoothness and texture. The final Gartelmann wine of the day was a Late Harvest Ambrosia. Its sumptuous nutty and apricot flavours made it rich and luscious and at the same time fresh and clean tasting, providing a happy and complementary pairing of the puddings”

“The quality of food, cooking and the excellent standard of service at The Red Lion is certainly something to be admired and with a 25 bedroom luxury boutique hotel being built by the owner in the field next door… this is certainly a venue to watch!”
