Ask Carolyn Martin what her favourite red wine is and she answers without hesitation. Yes, it is Pinot Noir which she fondly refers to as ‘Prince Charming wandering through the forest picking wild strawberries’. And which she also dearly loves for its great pairing potential. Take for example the delectable combination of Poached Line Fish, Raspberry Curd, Beetroot Dust, Pickled Radish, Herb Oil and Creation Reserve Pinot Noir presently offered on the FynArts Story of Creation Menu.
With Pinot Noir Day around the corner (18 August), we thought we’d also check with Creation Cellarmaster Jean-Claude (JC) Martin. He confirmed that like his wife, his red wine of choice is … the Noble Prince.
