|CRACKER drop with everything from mushrooms on toast to
Thai fish cakes, lemon chicken or even German sauerbraten.
ONE TO NOTE: A somewhat simple and impromptu "dinner party" of creamed and slightly-peppery mushrooms on toast for those who lingered on after watching the Melbourne Cup at a mate's home, will in fact be long remembered for one thing – our host's choice of a perfect wine to match this simple but successful offering.
For he broke out a few 2016 Pepper Tree Limited Release Wrattonbully Pinot Gris, a wine whose lovely Nashi pear and fig flavours matched so stunningly with the creamy spiciness of those mushrooms. Winemaker Gwyn Olsen really has crafted a cracker drop with this one, and if you are after something more substantial than those mushrooms on toast, think about matching it with Thai fish cakes, lemon chicken or even German sauerbraten (pot roast.) And it is just $22 a bottle.
