Falling into Autumn

The nights and mornings are just getting tinged with darkness and it makes me start to think about flavours and textures that make the cooler seasons so wonderful.

We were really luck to get the opportunity to taste Te Mata Estate’s 2015 vintage at The George Hotel last week.

Wow what a great vintage and while many of the wines are ready to be enjoyed now, ‘The Coleraine’ will cellar well for many years to come. Look out for these wines on the new wine list that will be launching mid April. Over the coming weeks we will be tasting some wines on Friday’s from 6pm, a¬†little taste as you arrive to gather some feedback. This week we start with Mt. Beautiful Winery from North Canterbury. By producing elegant, certified-sustainable, estate-grown wines, they have found a way to capsure in the bottle, the climate and the richness of the land.

Wines aren’t the only think getting a makeover – the cocktail list goes moody, the beers less fruity and the kitchen are busy developing some new dishes in the kitchen. Some of these will be getting a try out on the trust the chef menu which as many of you know is a fabulous, relaxed and interesting¬†way to dine at Clink.
