Steamed Soon Hock with Black Garlic (Seasonal Price) pairs effortlessly with Chardonnay.
At CLAN 7, the wine list has three such offerings.
There’s Champagne Chapuy Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut Reserve (S$139), Domaine Maurice Tremblay Chablis 2018 (S$79), and Woodlands Wilyabrup Margaret River Chardonnay 2020 (S$89).
The champagne and Chablis are without oak influence and their fruitiness is of citrus, apples, and with a minerally aspect. Both are very refreshing, especially the champagne. Do not serve too cold or the wines will be numbed.
Family-owned and family-managed Woodlands of Margaret River is one of Australia’s top wineries. This estate Chardonnay reveals delicate peach/citrussy fruitiness with a hint of vanilla as the wine was fermented entirely in French oak barrels.
I declare my interest that I am wine consultant to CLAN 7.
