Springtime at Kuhlman Cellars is a sight for sore eyes. I drove to the Texas Hill Nation right now for Kuhlman Cellars’ Blessing of the Vines spring celebration occasion (extra on that later) and was shocked to see how awake the vines and wildflowers already are. After having fun with the grounds and snapping some picks, I lastly acquired to attempt the winter 2023 Wine and Meals Expertise menu. Kuhlman Cellars is thought for his or her beautiful wine and meals tasting and dare I say, this may be my favourite menu but!
When you’ve finished the tasting earlier than, it’s time to do it once more. Why? As a result of Kuhlman modifications the menu seasonally. Tastings happen within the barrel room, which is all the time good and funky regardless of how sizzling the Texas solar feels.
The pairing begins with the 2021 Property Roussanne (my favourite Kuhlman wine!) paired with a scrumptious Japanese Egg Custard with tamari, preserved mushrooms, and galangal crunch adopted by the 2021 Property Rosé (the 2021 is my favourite classic to this point of this wine) paired with housemade roasted beet hummus with sea salt crackers. The hummus was nice by itself however actually sparkled with the rosé.
The tasting all the time contains Kuhlman’s most beloved pairing: the 2019 Alluvé with their well-known herbed almonds. When you’ve by no means had them earlier than, belief me, you’re going to purchase a bag to take dwelling.
Subsequent up was my favourite pairing: the 2019 Property Crimson with delicata squash tapenade with honey ricotta on focaccia. I’d by no means, ever suppose to pair crimson wine such a dish however wow. This pairing completely blew my thoughts. It reworked the dish! That is what wine and meals pairings are all about.
Final however definitely not least was the 2017 Ignis , a easy crimson wine, paired with roast beef on polenta cracker with spinach butter and rosemary oil, an distinctive sip with an ideal beefy chunk.
This would possibly simply be my favourite wine and meals tasting menu at Kuhlman Cellars so far! Simply take a look at the enjoyment on my face throughout this tasting.
