Waterfall Cafe will launch a quarterly Mediterranean wine journey on 1 January 2013. Aimed at showcasing the unique range of Mediterranean wines at Waterfall Cafe, the wine journey begins with Spanish wines from 1 January to 30 March 2013. Guests can sip on five Spanish wines paired with a five-course dinner set menu inspired by Mediterranean flavours and the use of sustainable and fresh seasonal produce.
Wines from the Mediterranean region bear different characteristics from the various microclimates. “Microclimate” refers to the specific area with its own unique climate, influenced by factors such as the different soil components as well as the varying exposure to sun, water and sea. All of these contribute to the uniqueness of indigenous grape varieties from the Mediterranean region used in wine production.
The first leg of Waterfall Cafe’s Mediterranean wine journey starts in Spain. In recent years, Spanish wines have gained popularity among wine lovers in Singapore due to its quality and increased production. Guests can look forward to enjoying the sparkling wine Juve y Camps Reserva de la Familia Cava, white wine K-Naia Bodegas Naia Verdejo Rueda, rosé wine Mas Amor Rosado Massard and Brunet, red wine Finca el Romero Vinas Viejas Franck Massard Montsant and P.X. Fernando de Castilla Antique Sherry.
The flavours of these Spanish wines are accentuated by five dishes specially created by Chef de Cuisine Stephane Cocu. The starter of Poilâne Bread Crostini with Figs, Sun Dried Tomatoes, Chorizo, Capsicum and Sherry Vinegar Dressing complements sparkling wine Juve y Camps Reserva de la Familia Cava. The rustic taste of long fermentation from Poilâne bread, the smooth texture of mixed roasted vegetables and figs with a twist of smokiness by the chorizo balances out the creamy, bubbly yet refreshing taste of this sparkling wine.
Finca el Romero Vinas Viejas Franck Massard Montsant red wine combines perfectly with the main course of Oven Roasted Guinea Fowl wrapped in Smoked Bacon, Brussels Sprout Fricassee, Sweet Potato and Glazed Plum. This warm winter dish exudes intense flavours of smoked bacon, sweet plum and potatoes with a touch of bitterness from the Brussels sprouts, which are infused by this tannic wine. To end dinner on a sweet note, the sweet, creamy and fig flavours of P.X. Fernando de Castilla Antique Sherry pairs with the nutty, buttery Walnut Tart with Gingerbread Ice Cream.
The Spanish wine journey is priced at S$148 per person. The five-course dinner without wines is priced at S$88. The dinner set menu is available from 6 to 10:30 p.m. on Monday to Saturday, at Waterfall Cafe located on level one of the Garden Wing.
Guests can look forward to tasting wines from France in the second leg of Mediterranean wine journey, Italy in the third leg before ending with Lebanon.
