Duck & Pinot Dinner
THURSDAY APRIL 20TH - limited availabity
FRIDAY APRIL 21ST - SOLD OUT
One of the relative certainties in the mysterious world of food and wine matching is that pinot noir goes with duck.
Duck and Pinot Noir is a classic, no fail pairing. As duck is quite rich, it’s best paired with a wine with some acidity. Being a lighter style of red wine, Pinot delivers much more freshness than heavier styles. The acidity cuts through the richness of the duck, and the fruit flavours of cherry and plum pair deliciously with the soft gamey characteristic of the meat.
Join us as our award winning kitchen team explores this fantastic pairing with a beautiful 5 course dinner, including the Grand's signature twice cooked duck matched with 5 standout Victorian Pinot Noirs.
