The Pullet's Egg x St Helga's Riesling

POSTED BY Duke ON 06 SEP 2012 @ 04:52 PM
Pullet's Egg, Smoked Onion, Duck Ham
A Pullet is a chook that is laying eggs before it is 1 year old. The eggs are slightly smaller than a normal egg. They are a seasonal product and we are very lucky to be able to source them. We have this dish on our Tuesday tasting menu while the eggs are available. Not only is the flavour a lot richer than usual but the yolk is a much more vibrant colour.

The dish is served with an onion purée made from sweet white onions and butter that has been smoked over hay. The duck ham is house made and has been hanging for a month. It is smokey, salty and holds its flavour perfectly when partnered with the richness of the egg and sweetness of the onion.

2005 Steingarten St. Helga Riesling, Barossa Valley, SA
Every now and then the big Aussie wine companies do the right thing. 2005 was an amazing year for most of Australia's wine growing regions and the Barossa Valley was no exception. Pernod Ricard, the company that own the Steingarten brand, have some of the most amazing vineyard sites I have ever scene, and that is where the fruit for this wine is sourced from. Just hitting it's stride at its 7th birthday, this wine delivers a minerality and richness that few can match. We didn't get much, so make sure you try one!
