Wine Dinner at Truffels Restaurant, Taylors University

Courtesy of Mr Patrick, Chung and I were invited to the Wine Dinner at Truffels Restaurant at Taylors University. This Wine dinner is associated with Malaysia's Sommelier Association where the whole purpose is to learn how to match food with wine, and most of all, enjoy the drinks!

The dinner started at 7pm where the guest started pouring in to the restaurant to grab a seat on the fancy tables. The Group that was serving us were none other than DH 33 Group 4

There were 4 wines served to us were:

Henkell Troken Sekth Sparkling Brut NV, Germany
which was paired with an omelette

Katnook Estate, Founder's Block Chardonnay 2006 Coonawara Australia

Craggy Range, Te Muna Road Pinot Noir 2008, Martinborough, New Zealand
which were paired with the white stew chicken

Bodega San Diosinic, Vinc de Licor Monastrell (its a sweet red wine)
which was paired with the dessert

Lets get straight to the pictures then:

basically i would say that an omelette is really hard to pair up with as this wine was over powering the omelette, As for the main course the pPinot Noir was able to bring out the flavors of the chicken while the Chardonnay wasn't able to. And last but not least, The Bodega San diosinic was an awesome pair with the Dessert which manage to compliment each other

Once again, I want to thank Mr Patrick for this wonderful opportunity and I will surely be back for more! =D
