On The Pass 

Michelin

Hundred Hills is being served at over twenty Michelin-starred restaurants, often featuring on the wine pairing in restaurants like Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, The Fat Duck, Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester, and the Hand and Flowers.

The sparkling wines of Hundred Hills are incredibly versatile for pairing with food due to their intense fruit aromas and bright acidity. Creamy, fatty and salty foods work so well in combination with our wines, as it is the acidity that cuts through the fat and sings with salt on any dish.

On The Pass is our way to highlight some of the incredible dishes and ingredients that pair so well with our wines, as well as the talented sommeliers and chefs pushing the boundaries on pairing.

 

“Really mouth-filling. Round and orangey and super-clean. Complete. Very much a gastro-wine. Just lovely already and reaches every nook and cranny on the palate.”

Oysters

A classic combination, and with the UK producing some of the world’s finest Oysters, it seems fitting to pair them with our mineral 2018 Blanc de Blancs. This pairing works perfectly due to the notable umami synergy between lees aged wines and oysters. The bright acidity and complex layers of citrus notes also elevate the fresh saltiness of the oyster. If you haven’t yet tried it, we recommend pouring a splash directly into the oyster shell itself. The team have most recently been enjoying Carlingford Lough oysters farmed by the Rooney family on the Northern Irish coast.

Sinodun Hill, Norton & Yarrow

Just like the French, we believe local cheese and local wine pair supremely – lucky for us our neighbouring cheese maker Norton & Yarrow make some of the world’s finest goats cheese. Their Sinodhun Hill’s flavour changes with the seasons depending on what their Anglo-Nubian Goats are eating in the fields – this really is terroir-driven cheese. Awarded the best artisan cheese in the 2022 World Cheese Awards, The Sinodun Hill is a dense goat’s cheese with a fresh, citrus flavour which deepens as it ages to reveal almond and red fruit notes. Its creamy, mousse-like texture works extremely well with the strawberry notes of our Signature Rose 2018 – the wine’s layers of citrus fruit cut through the rich and tangy nature of the cheese.

Crown Prince Squash

We have had some excellent sommeliers pairing our Preamble No.2 with pumpkin and squash dishes, due to our wines rich notes of nectarine and yellow plum which hold up perfectly to roasted squash, with the aromas of blood orange cutting through the sweetness.

 

Charcuterie, bottle and glass

Charcuterie

The United Kingdom is producing more local, artisanal charcuterie and salumi than ever before – Saucisson, lardo, Bresaola, and coppa are some of the styles that pair best with our sparkling wines.

The sweet, fattiness Westcombe Dairy’s saucisson is cut with the round acidity of our Hundred Hills 2019 Blanc de Noirs, with the palate of rich stone fruits that hold up to the savoury saltiness.

St Barts Rhubarb and Yoghurt dessert

Head of wine Emma Denney of St. Barts restaurant has selected our 2018 Signature Rose to be served alongside their Yoghurt & Rhubarb dessert – which consists of a yoghurt sorbet sitting on top of a milk powder crumb with a Yorkshire rhubarb compote alongside a brown butter cake with a rhubarb and whey gel. Emma says “I decided to pair the Rose with this dish due to it not being overly sweet. The bubbles help to cleanse the palate after the sticky brown butter cake and the aromas of the wine pair beautifully with the tartness of the rhubarb and yoghurt.”
