      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.
