We are thrilled to bring one of the most exciting wine producers of the New World to Leeds for an exclusive evening of wine and food pairings.
The Leyda Valley in Chile lies to the west of Santiago, just 14km from the Pacific, and its proximity to the sea ensures cooling summer breezes which whip across the vineyard from 10am each day, moderating temperatures and cleansing the vineyard. Until recently the landscape was dominated by wheat and barley but in 1997 the Fernandez family, together with Gustavo Llona, recognised the potential of the area for growing grapes and established Viña Leyda.
Here at iroko we have had a great time matching foods to these glorious wines. Our chef, Rob Higgins, says its the most exciting food paring he's done in a long time and has managed to be playful with the matchings on the evening, taking inspiration from not just Chile but from all over the Pacific Ocean with flavours from Korea, Mexico, Australia and Polynesia.
On the night we will be serving,
Sea Bass Taco, Peach Salsa, Avocado, Green Romesco - paired with 2018 Sauvignon Reserva
