Each month, the culinary team at Michael's On East is challenged to design a unique menu inspired by the world's most exotic food (and wine!) destination as our wine specialists at Michael's Wine Cellar work hard to select perfect wine pairings for the featured menus.
The following wines will be featured in the Restaurant this August, hand-selected to be paired with Chef Jamil and Chef Catherine's Indonesian Epicurean Adventure
Viognier/Chenin Blanc/Grenache Blanc, The Wolftrap, ZA, 2012
Complex flavors of fruit blossom, dried fruit and spice. Rich creamy texture with some minerality and elegant oak nuances. Balanced natural acidity with concentrated flavors that lingers on the palate.
Pinot Noir "Light Horse", Jamieson Ranch Vineyards, CA, 2013
This deep garnet Pinot Noir showcases ripe cherry, strawberry and raspberry aromatics that commingle with anise, cinnamon and a hint of white pepper. Sumptuous red berry flavors blossom on the palate, while supple acidity and silken tannins contribute to the wine’s innate elegance.
