It was a great preview of the Capel Vale Wine Dinner at TATSU. Having seated and indulging one bite canapes was truly intrigging to me. So minute and yet so tasty, even sexier lipping over with a sparkling and bubbly white. I felt so rich and famous for a while, well the truth, the whole night. Cape Vale from within Western Australia and was amongst the first to be established with vines planted in 1974. Cape Vale itself now has established mature vineyards in Geogrphe, Pemberton, Mt Barker and Margaret River and produces wines that reflect the distinct climate and sole of each region.

1st Course was a combination of Smoked Salmon Tartar, Uni Egg White, Sweet Shrimp and Avocado with Spicy Cod Roe, Tuna seasoned with Wasabi and Crispy Sardine

I just love the first course what was plated for me that night. Ingenious creative with the sense of taste, smile and presentation. To start I forked into the sweet shrimp and avocado, it was fabulous. Tender and sweet with freshness, very ideal tobegin with and spooning into the fresh avocado flesh was truly filled with erotic in taste. The finely diced up smoked salmon was truly a classic surprise, I was begging for more. Yes it was melting good and very delicious. I did get another small portion direct from the kitchen. :) The uni egg white was nice in taste. The miniture bowl filled with luscous Tuna truely opened my appetite, yes it was interesting portion.

Paired with a gorgeous Debut Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2010

Sipping into my glass of Debut Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2010 wine was refreshing and jazzy. It was fruity in flavour with hint of lemon, pleasant to drink with and jived well with my tuna, salmon and shrimp. defitely a very summery drink, never need any consideration, just drink, defitely my type of white.

2nd Course was the melting Teriyaki Roasted Cod with Yuzu

Having to watch my second glass being poured over with Capel Vale’s Debut Chardonnay 2010 can be so exciting. My mind was visioning a tap with running liquid gold. Smells good. Having my eyes visually caught with the styling of the Teriyaki Roasted Cod with Yuzu was rather mind blowing too. The cod was well baked till exploded with the scent of terriyaki right infront of me. I for sure sipping into my next Capel Vale’s Debut Chardonnay 2010 can be so mind motivating. Just love the taste, it was fruity pungent that left with such a refined taste. Lovely definitely my type of white. Solely for pleasure.

How can one resist of not playing along indulging such delighted lip-cucculent Baked Foie Gras and tender Duck Loin with Raisin Sauce. It is definitely an in thing this days. And having both i one plate, it surely makes the night classy with style. I feltl so stylish. and like a young wannabee. Got to report, it was my first time chopsticking into a refined piece of baked foie gras. Slap me twice, yet I am still floating like in-heaven. Yes it was deliciously sexy.

The Second Red : Regional Series Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Now biting into the duck over with the Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 was elegantly delighted. It was fruity in taste and fovoured the duck in directly and briught out the overall taste. both the dish and the wine. Great pairing.
