Pair Your Pinot With Delicious Duck This May
It's time for Cloudy Bay winery's annual Pinot & Duck Tasting Trail
It’s almost duck-hunting season, so that means it’s time for premium winery Cloudy Bay’s annual Pinot & Duck Tasting Trail, which gets underway next week on May 1. This year sees more than 30 chefs around New Zealand taking part in the event, now in its fourth year. Each chef has created a signature duck dish designed to pair with Cloudy Bay pinot noir, which will be available at a set price per pairing on menus until the end of May — the dish pictured is Duck and Shiitake Pithiviers made by Des Harris for Augustus Bistro, and it comes with a glass of the excellent Te Wahi 2014 for $72.
Cloudy Bay’s personable viticulturalist Jim White will also host two exclusive, intimate dinners — at Oyster & Chop at the Viaduct in Auckland on May 3, and at Baretta Bar and Restaurant in Christchurch on May 4. Tickets, $150, are on sale at Oysterandchop.co.nz and Baretta.co.nz/reservations.
