          Friulano 2013, Marco Sara, Friuli, Italy

        Vourla 2011, Urla Winery, Izmir, Turkey. 

        With Quail Escabeche

        One of the most popular wines at Arabica is BACK after a short hiatus, and we love this full throttle deeply flavoured big red. A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and the indigenous varietal Bogazkere (translating as 'throat scraper' due to its burly tannins and grip) that can tackle many of the dishes on our menu. This wine breezes through the caramelised onion,apple, and pomegranate molasses elements in the dish, while not overwhelming the quail — great acidity keeps this from being a clunky wine.


        Friulano 2013, Marco Sara, Friuli, Italy.  

        With Crispy bits of lamb belly, Aleppo chilli, oregano, and lemon.

        Marco is one of the stars of the region, whose family own seven hectares of vines. Fully organic since 2005, his Friulano is an exercise in balance and class, a serene wine that makes for effortless drinking. Has the verve and energy to cut through fatty belly, while coping well with the lemon and chilli. One of our favourite whites on the list.

        October wine match by Zeren Wilson

        • Screen shot 2015 10 08 at 09.37.37

          Morgon 2011, Georges Descombes, Beaujolais, France

        Morgon 2011, Georges Descombes, Beaujolais, France.
        Enjoy with Sticky Lamb riblets, pomegranate glaze, cumin chilli salt.

        A 2011 Morgon, eh? Isn't this wine over the hill? Not at all. Georges Descombes is one of the 'daddies' of the appellation, and is regarded as one of the legends. Minimal intervention wines grown on 15.5 hectares of granite, he is great friends with Jean Foillard (another pillar of the Beaujolais community) and was mentored by Marcel Lapierre. Wonderfully savoury Gamay, with a core of juicy dark fruit — the wines age gracefully for many years. Keeps step with the pomegranate glaze here and refreshes the palate between morsels of sticky lamb riblet.

        Wine Matches of the month by Zeren Wilson

        • Mascaronne

          Château La Mascaronne Rosé 'Quat' Saisons' 2013, Provence, France

        • Feta

          WHIPPED FETA Charred Turkish chilli, toasted sunflower seeds, mint

        The prettiest of pale pinks, and a wonderfully delicate and dry character, brimming with red summer berries and a whiplash of refreshing acidity. Made with 70% Cinsault, 16% Grenache and 14% Syrah, this doesn't need food, and is very happy on its own, particularly when the sun is shining in our sun trap of a terrace. However, nibbling on some bread and whipped feta, or perhaps taramasalata, would be a fine partner.
