Schnitty night

15 Apr
2010

The last schnitty nite (schnitzels) was held at the Eden Valley Pub. This time we went closer to home and went to my ‘local’ pub Angus Park in Nuriootpa. We were a large group of 14 arriving all together and having a drink at the bar before sitting down for a relaxed work dinner, generously covered by Henschke Winery.

Schnitties were nice all around, I had mine with a Diane sauce on Fella’s recommendation seeing as normally I like mine just plain with perhaps a slice of lemon. It only gave them more reason to call me a Mexican because I was not in the habit of putting some bizarre topping like ‘prawns and bernaise’ or ‘Hawaiian’ mix on top of the meat!
Wines were a real treat and I have listed below the highlights for your viewing pleasure:
2008 Shadowfax Chardonnay East Gippsland
2008 RK Chardonnay Beechworth (Giaconda’s)
2002 Cullen’s Chardonnay Margaret River
2005 Fossati Dolcetto d’Alba DOC by Brezza Giacomo e Figli, Barolo
2005 Domaine Brusset Gigondas AOC Les Hauts De Montmirail
2002 Rosemount Estate Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon Mountain Estate
2005 Rockford’s Basket Press Shiraz
1986 Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon
1975 Wolf Blass Shiraz + 25% Cabernet Sauvignon
2008 Shadowfax Fortified Shiraz (vintage port aka ‘Farnacles’)
Yummmmmmmo
