Spanish Wine Lunch @ Bistro Vue

When we found out that Vue de Monde's Sommelier Raúl Moreno Yagüe was hosting a Spanish Wine Lunch at Bistro Vue, we knew that it would be a perfect opportunity to learn a bit more about these wines.

The first wine is a NV Bodegas Argüeso Manzanilla Clasica San Leon San Lúcar de Barrameda - made from 100% Palomino grapes

It was matched to the canapé - Pumpkin Consommé with tomato confit spherical ball, goat's cheese croutons

More Vue de Monde than Bistro - it was a deceptively simple dish. A real surprise was the pumpkin consommé - served just warm, it was pure pumpkin flavour.

The second wine was a 2006 Marques Del Riscal Blanco Limousin Rueda - made from Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc grapes.

It was paired with the entrée of Polenta "sardines on toast"

4 perfect sardine fillets sat upon the crisp square of polenta - they were topped with a soffritto of sorts and served with the Bouillabaisse sauce (from Vue de Monde)

As an extra treat, Raul shared with us his own bottles of the 2002.

Last wine is the 2006 Gandia Moscatel Fustanova Valencia

and it was matched with the stunning Crèpe Suzette Soufflée, served with Vanilla Bean Ice cream and cointreau sauce.
