Christmas Wine Offer for Cricket fans from Laithwaite's
Edgbaston Chief Executive Colin Povey invited members of his local East Haddon Cricket Club to try Laithwaite’s Luxury Dining Six package over dinner, which is available to cricket fans for just £85.
The team opened up with the Domaine de la Mandeliere Robert Nicolle Chablis (Colin’s favourite white) and Insight Sauvignon Blanc with their starters, with the former’s taste of crisp green apples being perfect for a warm summer evening after cricket. Finely tuned noses detected pears, apricots and blueberries in the Sauvignon Blanc, which the team suggested would be splendid with salmon.
Onto the middle order, main course and the reds, the team started with the popular Château Gachon Montagne Saint-Emilion before moving on to the lighter Duca di Cardino Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, which tasted of fresh berries, including strawberries and even a hint of cherry.
However, it was the Bodegas Primicia Carravacas Rioja Reserva that was the stand out performer for the East Haddon team; rich, complex and just about perfect.
