Gutzler Dinner @ Anthology SD

 

We had a great time at Anthology in Little Italy last night, where wine, food & music combined for a culturally diverse evening!

GUTZLER WINE DINNER TASTING MENU

 

We started with the night with a Chardonnay Blanc de Blancs German Sparkling Wine from Rheinhessen.

 

Dungeness Crab Salad

          Grapefruit, Haas Avocado, Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette

 

2006 Gutzler Spatburgunder (Pinot Noir) Blanc de Noir.  A white Pinot Noir that accentuated the sweetness of the crab and really played well with the Grapefruit segments which accentuated the richness in the wine.

 

Tuna 3 ways

          Big eye tuna tartare, avocado, hamachi tartar, watermelon, ponzu sauce, Sashimi of big eye tuna and hamachi

 

The 2006 Gutzler “Gutzler Select” Dry Riesling, this was the best pairing of the night, fatty fish with dry riesling is one of the best combinations ever.  The sweetness of the watermelon with the tartar and the creaminess of the avocado puree was brilliant with the acidity in the “GS”.

 

Duck Leg Confit

          Potato Rosti, Chive Crème Fraiche

 

2005 Gutzler Spatburgunder (Pinot Noir), Pinot and Duck is a classic combination for a reason, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.  Elegant lighter style Pinot was a nice change of pace, soft and delicate with well integrated fine tannin and a good bit of acidity that balanced the rich duck confit.

 

Warm Peach Financier

          White Chocolate Ganache, Candied Almond Ice Cream

 

2004 Gutlzer Riesling Auslese, this was my favorite course the dessert was so fresh and had this terrific savory component, the candied almond ice cream was smooth and delicious.  Auslese was brimming with peaches and stonefruits which worked itself into the dish seamlessly.

 

Our private dining room was right above the stage and Les Nubians began promply as the first course arrived.  There were a lot of our friends there and combined with the music, ambiance, food and wine everyone had a great time? 

 

If you missed it don’t worry, we’ll be doing a lot more of these dinners in the future!

 

Cheers!
