Pork In Cider:
We wouldn’t go far wrong with a super, dry cider from Asturias to match this dish – I love them! However it’s a wine we need, and I think a white one with some body to match the light meat of the pork and a touch of apple flavour in there as well to go along with the cider and apple in the dish.
When invited to present a wine tasting at Moraira’s new wine merchants, Bodega Collection World, I accepted with alacrity! Jorge, the owner, is the ex-sommelier of the Michelin Starred Restaurante Girasol, which closed recently.
Jorge knows his wines so it was sure to be a super collection in his shop and therefore a pleasure to present to the full-house of tasters, most of whom dined afterwards as well in the attached Salamandra Restaurant.
We tasted a white wine from Rueda, a super rosado wuth some oak ageing (quite rare these days) from Jumilla, a top Rioja crianza red (which restored many people’s faith in Rioja), a young, meaty red VdlT wine with good ageing potential, and finally a delicious dessert wine at on 10% abv!
