@Plate & Bottle Dinner.

Second course, Corn Pudding, Truffle Butter. So unique and executed masterfully by Chef Hedy. Corn is prepared with a leek thyme cream and few cherry tomato to garnish.

The Hourglass SB is so good on its own but, together they are a near perfect ten.

Stunning example of SB. There are many examples of mediocre to bad SB. This is absolutely not one of them. It’s everything a good SB can be! From 375ml.

Beautiful mad tropical with edgy minerality on the nose. Dry in style. Big citrus, white peach, mango, pineapple, green apple, green melon creamsicle beautifully balanced taut minerality that coats the palate and is simply fantastic with superlative acidity and long dry tropical finish. @Paul T You want some of this Sauv Blanc if you can find it.

Thisnis an excellent Sauvignon Blanc. Lush with fruit flavors, it is delicious and very drinkable. Seems complex in that it's somewhat dry, yet very fruit forward. Notes of pear, grapefruit, sour apple, yet very refreshing, light, crisp and drinkable. Liked it A LOT and I'm a red wine drinker.
