Wine Tasting at Terrys

We were invited some time ago to taste some wines from a boutique winery in Tasmania, which were meant to be included in the wine list of a resort in Palawan. The wine was sugarloaf and we tested 4 bottles: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. None of them stood out really except for the Sauvignon Blanc, which was correct, so we moved on to taste other wines that JC had served us together with some food:

A platter of Joselito Iberico meats (Jamon, Salchichon, Chorizo, Lomo) and a cheese platter.

Highlight though was Terry's Chuletin Vasco. Served rare with roasted garlic and pimientos.

It's served in a wooden cutting board and sliced in front of you, so you can salivate why you are waiting to eat it....

Fantastic meal and good wines (highlight for me was a wine called Placet, a wine made with viura grapes from Rioja). Winery is an Alvaro Palacios so you are sure that this is a very good wine.

Thank you JC for the wonderful treat. We enjoyed everything.
