You know how much we love wine here at our country home, and since April 17 is World Malbec Day, we have to celebrate it! So everyone dining with us at Restaurant Verbena will get a FREE bottle of Smoking Loon El Carancho Malbec for a minimum spend of PHP 3,000 nett. The Smoking Loon El Carancho Malbec has a great balance of sweetness and acidity. It’s great with red-meat, and its versatility allows it to be paired with a wide variety of dishes. To help you out, we’ve listed some few items from our menu that will pair well with this wine:
USDA Rib Eye Steak
We’re not kidding when we say this wine goes great with red-meat, and what better dish to chow on than a 400 gram, juicy, cooked-how-you-like-it steak? The perfect medley of meat and fat in this cut is a steak lover’s dream, and enough to make anyone drool at the thought of biting through this. Yum!
Wine Braised Beef
Wine on wine, anyone? Don’t worry, because the only intoxicating part of this dish is its flavor! The beef melts in your mouth, and the silky-smooth mashed potatoes give it an extra body in each bite. Pair that with a glass of Smoking Loon El Carancho Malbec, and that’s a meal to remember.
Baby Back Ribs
Who said that beer is the only drink that goes great with barbecue? The balance of sweet and savoury in this slab of meat mirrors the balance of sweetness and acidity of the wine, so this pairing is a must-try as well!
