Kyloe wine dinner brings taste of New Zealand to Edinburgh

30th April 2012 Print

Edinburgh’s leading gourmet steak restaurant & grill, Kyloe, is bringing wines from New Zealand vineyard Eradus to the capital for an exclusive wine dinner on 28 May in association with Corney & Barrow.

Based in the Marlborough region, Eradus wines differ from most others of the region’s vineyards because the estate is based in the Awatere Valley, south of the Wairau Plains – rather than in the Wairau.

Winemaker Michiel Eradus explains: “Our wine making is based around the concept of ‘balance’.

“Being based in the Awatere Valley means having our own extreme microclimate where grapes experience cooler nights and stronger winds as we’re closer to the sea.

“It gives our wines a lovely mineral backbone, fresh clean crisp and zingy acidity. These characters, when combined with riper fruit elements, have the potential to make fantastic wines.”

Kyloe head chef David Haetzman and his team will serve four delicious courses to complement the wines. David says: “These wines are truly unique and it’s been a pleasure creating dishes to bring out their delicate flavours on the palate.”

Michiel Eradus will introduce each wine and tell guests more about their heritage.

On the night, guests will be able to savour a fruity and herbaceous 2010 Sauvignon Blanc, followed by a complex and earthy 2009 Pinot Noir and lusciously pink 2010 Merlot Rose. Dessert will be accompanied by a Sticky Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc that can only be described as super-moreish.

The event takes place at Kyloe Restaurant & Grill (formerly Restaurant at the Rutland) from 7pm on Monday, 28 May. Tickets include all wines and a four course dinner and cost £50 per person (£45 for Rutland members). All tickets must be booked in advance by emailing lynn.millar[at]
