Welcome to this edition of the Restaurant 27 Wine List.
This version of the Wine List is especially important to me, let me explain why. In 2005 I travelled to New Zealand to work a vintage at Nautilus Estate making Pinot Noir (bin 56).
I went with my best pal, Guy Wilkes, who was at the time European Sales Director for family-owned Yalumba wines of Australia. We had an amazing time and learnt lots about Pinot Noir & ourselves.
Robert Hill-Smith, chairman of Yalumba, and a real people person, recalls a conversation with Guy whilst driving through the vineyards of South Australia during which Guy, quite harmlessly,
used the term parish to define one area from another. For some reason this very ordinary,
but to the Aussies in the car unheard of English term, caused much laughter and mickey-taking. Henceforth the far from parochial Pom came to be known as “Parish”.
Sadly, Guy is no longer with us, passing in April 2012, but Robert named a then recently purchased vineyard in the beautiful Cool River Valley of Tasmania in honour of that ‘parochial Pom’.
Riesling vines were planted, ideally suited to the cool growing conditions of Tasmania, and 6 years later I am now supremely happy to be able to offer to you, for the first time in the UK,
& exclusive to Restaurant 27, a tribute to Guy from this very special vineyard,
Parish Riesling 2016 (Bin 18)
If you would like to, please ask one of the Front of House team for any further advice on the wine list or for their recommendations on matching your wine selection to your menu choice. We work together, tasting the wines against the Menu to ensure there is always a suggestion available to you if you are unsure, or perhaps just want to try something different.
