Scallops & Carrot Purée With a Glass of Medot
4th June 2020
Creating a Fine Dining experience at home can be a great way to enjoy a date night with your lockdown partner.
If you want to create a wholesome fine dining experience then you are going to want to start with a starter, something delicious but not filling to start off your tastebuds.
Picking a Fine Glass of Bubbly
After looking in ‘The Finest Champagne & Sparkling Wines with their recommended food pairings’ book by Stefania Ruffo and Christopher Walkey, I found a similar dish, Scallops and Jerusalem Artichoke Purée that was paired with a bottle of Medot Brut Cuvée, so I thought this Slovenian Sparkling Wine would work nicely.
With vines dating back 40 years, Medot has been producing Slovenian Sparkling since the 1990s.
Medot Brut Cuvée Tasting Notes
Aromas – “Green and yellow fruits with honey, a hint of oak and a smooth creamy finish.”
Taste – “Delicate apricot, lightly toasted bread and citrus.”
This Slovenian Sparkling Wine won a Gold Medal in the Classic & Elegant Category at The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly Awards 2019.
