About this wine-tasting event
As with all wine-tastings held by Yats Wine Cellars in the past, the objective is always to offer a convenient and cost-effective opportunity for wine enthusiasts to enhance their knowledge by tasting different kinds of wines side by side. There is nothing more revealing and informative than a comparative tasting of wines in a well designed lineup.
For this upcoming event, Yats Wine Cellars turns your attention not just to the classic wines of the world but on the art of pairing food with wine to create a synergy that can offer immense pleasures. Participants will taste four kinds of wines paired carefully with a specific kind of food. Wine lovers of all level of sophistication will have no trouble appreciating the synergy. The pleasure of the pairing exceeds the sum of the pleasures offered by the wine and by the food.
The four kinds of wines selected for this wine-tasting session are:
Italian Red Wine paired with a full-throttle Italian lasagna. Notice how the heaviness of the lasagna melts down once you have mouthful of a classic Tuscany red wine on the palate.
Classic White Wine paired with deep-fried prawn toast. The crisp acidity of the white wine cuts through the oil of the food resulting in a delectable impression that is quite refreshing.
Vintage French Red Wine is paired up with French blue cheese. This is an application of contrast in doing a food-wine pairing. The cheese is fatty and heavy. We use vintage red wines that are slim, agile, racy and vigorous. It seems like the two will go to war against each other but instead they end up hugging and dancing with each other once they combine inside your mouth.
Sweet Dessert Wine is paired delicately with a liver pate served on simple toast. On the surface this again smacks of a natural disaster. The sweet dessert wine is obviously designed to enjoy with dessert, something nice and sweet. The liver pate is dry and fatty. Toast is bland and boring. How can this work? Well, it does and one of the reasons is that the sweet wine comes with a high degree of acidity. In fact, it is one of the most acidic styles of wines. But of course, we only taste the sweetness.
Enjoying the wine tasting event
Guests can arrive anytime during the event and enjoy the tasting at his/her own pace. Each ticket contains a certain number of tasting stubs. Each stub corresponds to a flight, or group, in the lineup. Just approach the wine service station and surrender a stub to redeem it for a tasting pour (roughly 55-60ml) of a wine in that group.
Experienced wine drinkers who have attended more than a few of these wine-tasting events often start with lighter wines and end with the ones that full-bodied. Having a sip of water in between tastings can help cleanse the palate to appreciate different set of flavors of the wines in the next glass.
Many participants also enjoy meeting new friends during these wine-tasting events. Some find it a great pleasure to talk to people with similar interests but different experiences in wine. Interesting stories are exchanged and opinions are shared during the tasting.
