Dinner @ Felt

Tonight's dinner is a bit different - this time we're having a special degustation.

Roast tomato soup with ham hock and Comté samosa
2007 Milton Chenin Blanc

A really interesting soup - when I think tomato soup I think of something thick and heavy but this was completely different. The flavour was certainly there from the roasted tomatoes but the texture was more delicate and light, it was creamy but not heavy. The samosa had an incredibly moist interior, the ham wonderfully juicy, it teemed well with the Comté.

Green prawn and avocado cocktail; Salmon gravalax, Avruga caviar sauce
2007 Mitchell Watervale Riesling

I absolutely loved the texture of the salmon, sliced thicker than normal, they were so tender to eat - the avruga sauce was well balanced, offering just enough of that salty element from the caviar. The modern prawn cocktail was equally good.

Chicken and Ham hock cannelloni, sweet corn relish, pepper sauce
2003 Domaine Moillard Cotes du Nuits

The cannelloni is filled with a mixed of chicken and ham hock and sits on a bed of sweet corn relish, it's topped with roasted red capsicum and accompanied by a roasted red capsicum sauce. It's quite morish and well balanced.

Otway pork cutlet, cabbage and apple
2005 Heritage Cabernet Malbec

Beautifully crisp pork crackling sits atop the juicy pork cutlet, the braised cabbage and apple are classic accompaniments.

Oozy and lovely - perfectly matched with the PX
